Magnesium Fluoride Properties (Theoretical)
NCI) NCI Thesaurus (NCIt) Having a chemical formula of F−, fluoride ion is the simplest inorganic, monatomic anion of fluorine with basic properties. It is considered a trace element.
(iii) Magnesium fluoride does not conduct electricity when it is solid.
two valence electrons
– We know that in magnesium, there are two valence electrons and in fluorine there are seven valence electrons.
Magnesium fluoride represented by the chemical formula MgF2 or F2Mg that bears the IUPAC name magnesium difluoride is a stable compound that is not hygroscopic as such and slightly soluble in dilute acids (like nitric acid) but insoluble in alcohol.
Lewis Structure of Magnesium Fluoride The atomic number of magnesium is 12 where its electronic configuration is 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2. This makes the total number of valence electrons in magnesium 2. Whereas for fluorine the atomic number is 9 and its electronic configuration is 1s2 2s2 2p5.
