By: Jeff Hatten and Meg Fausz

History and Properties


  • Fluorine was discovered in 1886 by French chemist Henri Moissan (1852-1907). Moissan collected the gas by passing an electric current through one of its compounds, hydrogen fluoride
  • Color- Pale yellow
  • Texture- rough
  • Smell- Pungent
  • Uses- Rocket Fuel,Tooth Paste.



  • Sodium fluoride (NaF)
  • stannous(II) fluoride (SnF2)
  • sodium monofluorophosphate (Na2PO3F)

Halogens

  • Halogens are highly reactive, and they can be harmful or lethal
  • All have 7 valence electrons
  • Non-Metals
  • Poor conductors of heat and electricity
  • Can exist in all three classical states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas
