Although a major effort of oxidizer chemistry is the development of new oxidizers of increased oxidizer strength, no quantitative methods existed until now to either define, measure or compute the strength of an oxidizer, the only data available were some isolated observations that some oxidizers were capable to fluorinate a given substrate while others were not. However, even these qualitative data were inconsistent because it was possible to distinguish whether the failure of an attempted oxidative fluorination was due to an insufficient oxidizer strength or poorly chosen reaction conditions or excessively high activation energy barriers.
