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.

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]
