NEET Chemistry The p-Block Elements (XII) Questions Solved

BOARD

What inspired N.Bartlett for carrying out reaction between Xe and PtF6?

Since PtF6 oxidises O2 to O2+, Bartlett thought that PtF6 should also oxidise Xe to Xe+ because the ionization enthalpies of O2 (1175 kJ mol-1) and Xe (1170 kJ mol-1) are quite close.
