Xenon oxytetrafluoride (XeOF4) is an inorganic chemical compound. As are all xenon compounds, it is extremely reactive and unstable, and hydrolyses in water to give dangerously hazardous and corrosive products:
XeOF4 + 2H2O → Xe + 4HF + 3/2 O2
In addition, some ozone and fluorine are also formed. The reaction is extremely dangerous, and xenon oxytetrafluoride should therefore be kept away from any trace of water or water vapour under all conditions.
XeOF4 reacts with H2O in the following steps:
XeOF4 + H2O → XeO2F2 + 2HF
XeO2F2 + H2O → XeO3 + 2HF
XeO3 is a dangerous explosive, decomposing explosively to Xe and 3/2 O2.
