  title={Xenon Tetrafluoride: Crystal Structure},
  author={James A Ibers and Walter Clark Hamilton},
  pages={106 - 107}
On the basis of a three-dimensional x-ray analysis, the xenon tetrafluoride molecule in the solid is planar; the approximate symmetry is D4h. The average distance between the xenon and the fluorine is 1.92 � 0.03 �.

Recent crystal structure determinations by neutron diffraction at Oak Ridge

Crystal structures have been determined from three-dimensional neutron data for xenon difluoride, xenon tetrafluoride, barium chloride dihydrate, potassium heptafluoniobate, chloral hydrate, sucrose,

Molecular Structure of XeF6. II. Internal Motion and Mean Geometry Deduced by Electron Diffraction

The distribution of internuclear distances in gaseous XeF6 exhibits unusually diffuse XeF6 bonded and F–F geminal nonbonded peaks, the latter of which is severely skewed. The distribution proves the

Xenon Tetrafluoride: Fluorine-19 High-Resolution Magnetic Resonance Spectrum

The F19 spectrum of XeF4 dissolved in anhydrous hydrogen fluoride has been observed at two frequencies, yielding a F19 chemical shift of 175 parts per million to lower field than the solvent and a

Molecular Structure of XeF6. I. Analysis of Electron‐Diffraction Intensities

A gas‐phase electron‐diffraction investigation of xenon hexafluoride has been carried out in an effort to obtain structural information which might shed light on the curious properties of the

Principal Types of Crystal Structures

At present more than a hundred thousand of crystal structures are known. They can be classified according to definite features of their enormous diversity. First of all, we shall consider the

Molecular Structure of XeF6 and IF7

The deflection of molecular beams of XeF2, XeF4, XeF6, and IF7 in an inhomogeneous electric field has been examined. From the defocusing behavior of each of these species, it is concluded that the

Anisotropy of the Fluorine Chemical Shift Tensor in Xenon Tetrafluoride

Shift anisotropy in XeF/sub 4/ was investigated and attempts were made to determine the differences between the principal values or the Fig shift tensor in XeF/sub 4/ as precisely as possible. In all

Ab initio calculations and high resolution infrared investigation on XeF4

Ab initio calculations employing effective core potentials and polarized triple‐zeta basis sets have been carried out for XeF4 at the following levels: self‐consistent‐field (SCF) theory,

Electron Spin Resonance Spectrum of XeF in γ‐Irradiated Xenon Tetrafluoride

The radical XeF has been detected by means of electron spin resonance in a single crystal of XeF4 γ‐irradiated at 77°K. The following hyperfine interaction constants were obtained for magnetic field

Magnetic Shielding of 19F in XeF4

The second moment of the 19F nuclear magnetic resonance of XeF4 has been measured as a function of temperature and of magnetic field both in the rigid lattice and above a motional transition. A
