F2 is stronger oxidizing agent than cl2

down the group reduction potential decreases. so oxidising power decreases.

  • 6

as you can find in electrochemical series F2 is placed above Cl2 and F2 has most +ve reduction potential.so F2 is better oxidising agent than Cl2.

  • -1

F2 is strong oxidising agent than Cl2 because

  1. Bond dissociation enthalpy of F2 is less than that of Cl2.
  2. Electron gain enthalpy of F is less than that of Cl2.
  3. F- has high hydration enthalpy than Cl- due to small size.

F2 is strong oxidizing agent than Cl2 althoough electron gain enthalpy is low why/
  • -6
because F is more electronegative than Cl and it attracts the shared pair of electrons towards itself easily and strongly towards itself than Cl .
  • -2
also when we compare the reduction potential F has high positive value of reduction potential than that of Cl .That is why F is stronger oxidising agent than Cl
