Xenon oxytetrafluoride (XeOF<sub>4</sub>) is an inorganic chemical compound. As are all xenon compounds, it is extremely reactive and unstable, and hydrolyses in water to give dangerously hazardous and corrosive products:(VSEPR = square pyramidal)

XeOF<sub>4</sub> + 2H<sub>2</sub>O → Xe + 4HF + 3/2 O<sub>2</sub>

In addition, some ozone and fluorine are also formed. The reaction is extremely dangerous, and xenon oxytetrafluoride should therefore be kept away from any trace of water or water vapour under all conditions.


O in the following steps:

XeOF<sub>4</sub> + H<sub>2</sub>O → XeO<sub>2</sub>F<sub>2</sub> + 2HF

XeO<sub>2</sub>F<sub>2</sub> + H<sub>2</sub>O → XeO<sub>3</sub> + 2HF

XeO<sub>3</sub> is a dangerous explosive.
