How does xenon react with O₂F₂?

From my research, it really depends on the experimental conditions and procedure. One paper in 1965 found that primarily $\ce{XeF2}$ was formed when xenon reacted with $\ce{O2F2}$ at low temperatures$^...

Stoichiometric coefficients in reaction between vanadium(II) oxide and iron(III) oxide

Let's start with what POAC, (also known as law of conservation of mass) really talks about, Within a chemical reaction, no new atoms are created or destroyed. More formally, $$\sum{m_\mathrm{before\,...

Stoichiometric coefficients in reaction between vanadium(II) oxide and iron(III) oxide

[OP] Now, by the Principle of Atom Conservation on vanadium, we get, $$n_\ce{VO} = 2\times n_\ce{V2O5}$$ This is not universally true. In the extreme case where you don't provide any iron, it should ...

Conditions for Pd/C reduction of alkene

Catalytic hydrogenation is a fundamental reaction, specifically in organic chemistry (Ref.1). Yet, the reduction of multiple bonds using hydrogen gas $(\ce{H2})$ and a metal catalyst (e.g., $\ce{Pd/C}$...

Maximum possible hypochlorite concentration from electrolysis?

I interpret the question "Maximum possible hypochlorite concentration from electrolysis?", to imply a safe (that is, likely non-explosive) manufacture thereof. Also, as cited in this source, ...
