Chemical reactions of the elements
Reaction of krypton with air
Krypton does not react with air.
Reaction of krypton with water
Krypton does not react with water. It does, however, dissolve slightly to the extent of about 59.4 cm3 kg-1 at 20°C (293 K)
Reaction of krypton with the halogens
Whn a mixture of krypton and fluorine, F2, is cooled to -196°C (the boiling point of nitrogen) and zapped with an electric discharge or X-rays, the result is formation of the difluoride krypton(II) fluoride, KrF2. This compound decomposes on warming to room temeperature. The other halogens do not react with krypton.
Kr(s) + F2(s) → KrF2(s)
Reaction of krypton with acids
Krypton does not react with any acids.
Reaction of krypton with bases
Krypton does not react with any bases.
