Challenging the Oxidation-State Limitations of the Periodic Table via High-Pressure Fluorine Chemistry

Project description

Opening up new scientific frontiers in fluorine chemistry

Fluorine is an often overlooked aspect of chemistry, overshadowed by its better-known cousin, chlorine. The EU-funded HiPeR-F project will focus on chemical reactions with fluorine under extremely high pressure. The project will combine two specialised experimental fields of research – the study of matter under extremely high pressure and the study of extreme chemical reactivity. Fluorine under high pressure represents a breakthrough testing environment, challenging the oxidation state limitations of the elements in the periodic table. The newly discovered compounds synthesised at high-pressures might display unusual electronic structures and exotic physical properties.
