About me
fluorine is a Group 17 element. Fluorine is the most electronegative and reactive of
all elements. It is a pale yellow, corrosive gas, which reacts with practically all
organic and inorganic substances. Finely divided metals, glass, ceramics, carbon,
and even water burn in fluorine with a bright flame. It is not uncommon to see
fluorine spelled incorrectly as flourine.In 1670 a recipe containing Bohemian
emerald (now known as calcium fluoride, CaF2) was used to etch glass. It seems
that George Gore made a little fluorine through an electrolytic process but his
apparatus exploded when the fluorine produced reacted with hydrogen from the
other electrode. The element finally was isolated in 1886 by Ferdinand FrederHenri
Moisson who used an apparatus constructed from platinum. His reward was the
Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1906.
