Graphite Fluoride

Title: Graphite Fluoride
CAS Registry Number: 11113-63-6
CAS Name: Fluorine compd with graphite
Literature References: Non-wettable layered solid, CFx, (0.5n at (300°-600°) and (C2F)n at (350°-400°). Composition and color are a function of the fluorination temp; the F/C ratio increases with increasing temp, and color changes from black to gray to white. Prepn: O. Ruff, O. Bretschneider, Z. Anorg.
