Which among the following factors is the most important in making fluorine the strongest oxidising agent?
Bond dissociation energy
As we learnt in
Electron gain enthalpy -
When an electron is added to a neutral gaseous atom (x) to convert it into a negative ion, the enthalpy change accompanying the process is defined as the electron gain enthalpy
There are two factors that affect fluorine's oxidizing power namely Hydration enthalpy and Bond energy. But of these, Hydration enthalpy plays a greater role than the other.
