"Inert" xenon actually forms several compounds, especially with the highly electronegative elements oxygen and fluorine.

"Inert" xenon actually forms several compounds, especially with the highly electronegative elements oxygen and fluorine. The simple fluorides XeF2, XeF4, and XeF6 are all formed by direct reaction of the elements. As you might expect from the size of the xenon atom, the Xe-F bond is not a strong one. Calculate the Xe-F bond energy in XeF6, given that the heat of formation is -402 kJ/mol.
