Infobox disclaimer and references

Tetrafluorohydrazine, N2F4, is a colourless, reactive inorganic gas. It is a fluorinated analog of hydrazine. It is a highly hazardous chemical. In presence of organic materials it explodes.

Additional recommended knowledge

Tetrafluorohydrazine is manufactured from nitrogen trifluoride using iron or iron(II) fluoride. It is used in some chemical syntheses, as a precursor or a catalyst.

Tetrafluorohydrazine is used as a high-energy liquid oxidizer in some rocket fuel formulas. In 1959 it was considered new for this application.[2]
