SiF2
« on: September 11, 2004, 08:22:58 PM »
Could anyone tell me what the binary compound is for SiF2? I'm doing my CAPA problems, and I can't seem to get it right. Is it Silicon Diflouride or Silicon Flouride or what?  Thanks!

SiF2?? Silicon has a valency of 4 FYI.. It should be SiF4

It's called Silicon Fluoride

SiF4 is also called tetrafluoro silane.
