Oxidation number of Fluorine
« on: February 13, 2020, 11:02:15 PM »
Hello everyone
Request to help me understand
1- How fluorine has the oxidation number +1 in HOF compound, even though in all other compound it has oxidation number -1.
2. Metals have the capability to loose electron and form positive ions, but in HOF compound Fluorine has an oxidation number +1, while fluorine is a non metal, how does it loses electron and gain +ve charge ?
