fluor·ine

(flo͝or′ēn′)
Symbol F A pale-yellow, poisonous, gaseous halogen element that is highly corrosive. It is used to separate certain isotopes of uranium and to make refrigerants and high-temperature plastics. It is also added in fluoride form to the water supply to prevent tooth decay. Atomic number 9. See Periodic Table.
