Fluorine hydration energy is very high due to its small size.

Also, dissociation enthalpy of fluorine is less as compared to chlorine due to large electron-electron repulsion in fluorine.

Because of these factors, fluorine has high positive electrode potential than chlorine.

Hence, among halogens, F2 is strongest oxidising agent.
