Why is a Cl-Cl bond stronger than an F-F bond?

No comments

This is due to the following two major reasons :-

  1. The fluorine atoms are very small in size .
  2. The florine element is having the highest electronegativity.

Due to these two reasons the florine atoms are so near after the F-F bonding that the start repelling each other due to higher electron desity, which makes it easy to break the bond.
