Stability of Higher Oxidation States

Chemistry

definition

stability of higher oxidation states of transition metal halides

1.Higher oxidation states of transition metals are stabilized by atoms of high electro negativity like O and F.
2.In higher oxidation states covalent bonds are formed because of that the compounds of higher oxidation state of d-block elements are stable.


definition

Stability of oxidation states of transition metal oxide

1.The highest oxidation states of transition metals are found in fluorides and oxides since fluorine and oxygen fluorine and oxygen are the most electronegative elements.
2.Mostly ionic bonds are formed in lower oxidation states but in higher oxidation covalent bond is formed because of that stability of transition metal oxides in higher oxidation state increases.
