Oxidation Number of Xenon

Xenon is a chemical element with symbol Xe and atomic number 54. It is a colorless, dense, odorless gas. Xenon is a noble gas, that is it is a member of the zero-valence elements called noble or inert gases (that does not react to chemical reactions) because the outer valence shell contains eight electrons. Xenon is a very dense gas with a density of 5.761 kg/m3, which is about 4.5 times the surface density of the Earth's atmosphere. The oxidation number of Xenon are 0, +1, +2, +4, +6, +8, out of which 6, 4, 2 are the stable ones. Xenon consists of eight stable isotopes. Three oxides of xenon are Xenon Trioxide(XeO3) with oxidation state +6, Xenon Tetroxide(XeO4) with oxidation state +8 and Xenon Dioxide(XeO2). The oxyfluorides of Xenon are XeOF2, XeOF4, XeO2F2, and XeO3F2.
