The article uses the disproportionation of chlorate and hypobromite as examples to analyze the application of arrow-pushing in the disproportionation of halogen oxoanions. Based on the experimental results, we have discussed the rationality of each possible mechanism we proposed based on electronic structure methods. All these efforts are put to demonstrate the way to introduce basic organic-style arrow-pushing into inorganic field.

Key words: Halogen oxoanion, Disproportionation, Inorganic reaction, Mechanism
