Pergamon Texts in Inorganic Chemistry, Volume 5: The Chemistry of Fluorine comprises a series of reviews on the physical and chemical properties of fluorine compounds. This book discusses the general properties of fluorine and fluorides; hydrogen fluoride solvent system; ionization in halogen fluorides; fluorides of main group elements; and chemical reactivity of higher fluorides of d- and f-transition elements. The production of elemental fluorine; acidity of hydrogen fluoride; preparative reactions in halogen fluorides; specificity of fluorination in rare gas reactivity; and bonding and structure in higher transition metal are also elaborated in this text. This publication is intended for chemical engineering students and chemists researching on the characteristics of fluorine and fluorides.
