Electronegativity of Fluorine (F) [& Uses, Discovery, Sources ...

Electronegativity is an important chemical property that tells how an atom of Fluorine may atract electrons from other atoms and form a bond. Ok what is the electronegativity of an atom of F?

In the case of Fluorine the electronegativity is 3,98. Now let's dive into some facts about Fluorine. I'll walk you through...

Fluorine Facts

Fluorine Electronegativity

3,98

Atomic Number

9

Uses

Used in refrigerants and other fluorocarbons. Also in toothpaste as sodium fluoride (NaF) and stannous fluoride (SnF2); also in Teflon.

Sources

Found in the minerals fluorite (CaF2) and cryolite(Na3AlF6). Electrolysis of hydrofluoric acid (HF) or potassium acid fluoride (KHF2) is the only practical method of commercial production.

Name Origin

Latin: fluere (flow).

State at 20 °C

gas

Description

Greenish-yellow, pungent, corrosive gas. Extremely reactive. Does not occur uncombined in nature.

Atomic Symbol

F

Discovery

Discovered By: Henri Moissan
Year: 1886
Location: France

Citation

When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Electronegativity of Fluorine (F) [& Uses, Discovery, Sources ..." Materials. Gelsonluz.com. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.
