why does flourine act as strong oxidising agent?
Asked by Aparna pappu | 6th Nov, 2012, 01:53: AM
Halogens have very high negative electron gain enthalpies and therefore have very strong tendency to gain an electron. Now because of this high electron acceptance tendency, they act as strong oxidising agents. So, flourine is the strongest oxidising agent and this oxidisng tendency trend decreases on going down the group.
