Oxidizing Properties and Electron Affinities

  1. As the vales of chemical potential (E0) increases, the oxidizing power also increases. Values of E0 for halogen molecule like F2 = -186.6 kcal/mol, Cl2 = -147.5 kcal/mole, Br2 = -136.5 kcal/mole, I2 = 122.6 kcal/mole. These value clerly shows that E0 values of flurine molecule is highest, thus flurine is strongest oxidizing agent.
  2. The strongest oxidizing property also explains by small value of chemical bonding dissociation energy of fluorine molecule. Dissociation energies of non-polar halogens molecule, F2 = 1.64 eV/mole, Cl2 = 2.48 eV/mole, Br2 = 2.00 eV/mole, I2 = 1.56 eV/mole.
