Florine with water and aqueous Fe2+

  1. Dec 13, 2006 #1
    Florine can oxidize water to oxygen and hydrogen floride.

    When reacts with aqueous Fe2+, water is being oxidized to give hydrogen peroxide and some OF2,(due to the strong oxidizing power of F2?) so the reaction is unsuitable to carried out, right? That means meanwhile Fe2+ is also oxidized to Fe3+, right?

    But this time why Florine reacts differently with water not giving oxygen and hydrogen floride?

    Please help me to solve each ?, clearing my concept, thanks!!!
