  • Fluorine recycling for lithium-ion batteries

    Lithium-ion batteries contain salts rich in fluorine, which decompose in humid air to toxic, highly corrosive hydrogen fluoride. The hazardous nature of this substance makes recycling more difficult and more expensive. A research project entitled "Fluoribat" is now being launched at Empa to solve th more

  • Carbon-loving materials designed to reduce industrial emissions

    Researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, are advancing gas membrane materials to expand practical technology options for reducing industrial carbon emissions. Results published in Chem demonstrate a fabrication method for mem more

  • Toxic and aggressive, but widely used

    In toothpaste, Teflon, LEDs and medications, it shows its sunny side – but elemental fluorine is extremely aggressive and highly toxic. Attempts to determine the crystal structure of solid fluorine using X-rays ended with explosions 50 years ago. A research team has now clarified the actual structur more

Here's all the camera angles and slow motion footage of the fluorine reactions we filmed with Professor Eric Hope. It reacts with iron, carbon, iodine and sulfur. more

Infographics Fluorine

Fluoride & Water Fluoridation

This graphic is the first in a series I’m hoping to make on chemicals with potentially undeserved reputations. In it, I’ll look at the evidence and research on each, and try to come to some kind of rational conclusion as to whether or not their bad reputation amongst the general public is deserved. more

Group 7 Elements

This graphic looks at the halogens, found in Group 7 of the Periodic Table. This group consists of the elements fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine and astatine – the as yet provisionally named artificial element 117, tennessine, may also be a halogen. As always, the following are a few interesting more
