Cesium Neonide: Molecule or Thermochemical Exercise?
Blake, P. G.; Clack, D. W.
Journal of Chemical Education, v59 n8 p637-39 Aug 1982
Thermochemical cycles are used to decide which hypothetical compounds might exist and, if not, what is the factor that condemns them to non-existence. Hypothetical compounds of rare gases provide examples of the approach with added historical interest that thermochemical considerations led to prediction and demonstration that XePtF-6 was stable.
