Answers (1)

Initially, he prepared a red compound of formula  O_2^+ PtF_6^- with the help of oxygen and PtF_{6}  . Later, he realised that the first ionisation enthalpy of molecular oxygen (1175 kJ/mol)  and that of xenon (1170 kJ/mol) are almost identical and then he tried to prepare the same type of compound with Xe and PtF_{6}. He was successful in preparing another red colour compound.Xe^+PtF_6^-
