Fluorine is a highly toxic pale-yellow diatomic gas with an atomic number of 9. Fluorine is extremely reactive: even noble gases form compounds with it(Noble gases are really not at all as noble as we think of them. They still react with some non metals like fluorine).

Properties

Fluorine atoms have nine electrons, one fewer than neon, and electron configuration 1s22s22p5: two electrons in a filled inner shell and seven in an outer shell requiring one more to be filled. The outer electrons are ineffective at nuclear shielding, and experience a high effective nuclear charge of 9 − 2 = 7; this affects the atom's physical properties.

It has a high electron affinity, second only to chlorine, and the highest electronegativity of any element.
