Fluorine was discovered by a chemist named Joseph Henri Moissan in 1886. He won the Nobel Prize in 1906 in chemistry, because he was the first person to isolate fluorine. The name Fluorine comes from the Latin word Fluere which means to flow.
Fluorine is found in drinking water and toothpaste(fluoride) to prevent cavities.
Hydrofluoric acid can dissolve glass and is used to etch the glass in light bulbs. It is also used in uranium processing.
Fluorine is usually found as a pale yellow color. Its structure is cubic crystals in the solid phase.
Fluorine is NOT man-made, it is natural and found in the Earths crust and in nature.
1) Melting point- -219.6 degrees C 2) Boiling point- -188.1 degrees C 3) Density- 293K
GAS Fluorine is a gas at room temperature (Halogen)
Fluorine is highly reactive and corrosive. Its the most chemically reactive and electronegative of all the elements! It is also flammable. It is so reactive that glass, metals, water, and other substances burst into flames when reacted with fluorine.
