Krypton difluoride is a chemical compound, made of krypton and fluorine. The compound is chemically unstable. It will break into its components within a few days. Kryptondifluoride reacts with an explosion when it comes in contact with water or with organic compounds. Kryptondifluoride is a strong oxidizing agent; it is able to convert xenon to xenonhexafluoride or iodine to iodine pentafluoride. KrF+ is the strongest known oxidizing agent, stronger than oxygen difluoride or elementary fluorine.
