Zinc fluoride (chemical formula ZnF2, formula quantity 103.37), white block or tetragonal needle crystalline powder, toxic. Slightly hygroscopic. Soluble in hot acid, hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, and ammonia, slightly soluble in water and hydrofluoric acid solution, insoluble in ethanol.
Hafnium fluoride (HfF4), or hafnium tetrafluoride, is a white crystalline solid. Structurally it is the same as zirconium tetrafluoride. Hafnium Fluoride is used in optical coating, optical fiber doping, laser crystal, crystal materials, and laser amplifier.
Fluoride is an organic or inorganic compound containing fluorine. Heeger Materials supply a wide variety of metal fluoride powders. Such as chromium fluoride, hafnium fluoride, molybdenum fluoride, niobium fluoride, rhenium fluoride, tantalum fluoride, titanium fluoride, tungsten fluoride, vanadium fluoride, zirconium fluoride, etc.
Fluoride is the anion F-, the reduced sort of fluorine. Both organic and inorganic compounds containing the element fluorine are called fluorides sometimes. Fluoride, like other halides, is a monovalent ion (-1 charge). Properties of its compounds are distinct relative to other halides. Structurally, and to some extent chemically, the fluoride ion resembles the hydroxide ion.
