Abstract

A three-dimensional x-ray analysis of a crystalline solid of Xe +8 formed by the reaction of XeF6 with sodium hydroxide solution indicates that it is sodium perxenate octahydrate, Na 4XeO6 · 8H2O. The perxenate ion, XeO6 -4, has approximately a regular octahedral configuration with a mean xenon-oxygen bond length of 1.875 Å.
