By Gareth G. Hougham,Patrick E. Cassidy,Ken Johns,Theodore Davidson

The fluorine atom, by way of advantage of its electronegativity, measurement, and bond power with carbon, can be utilized to create compounds with outstanding houses. Small molecules containing fluorine have many optimistic affects on daily life of which blood substitutes, prescription drugs, and floor modifiers are just a couple of examples. Fluoropolymers, too, whereas usually linked to severe excessive functionality purposes have came across their method into our houses, our garments, or even our language. a up to date American president was once usually likened to the tribology of PTFE. because the serendipitous discovery of Teflon on the DuPont Jackson Laboratory in 1938, fluoropolymers have grown progressively in technological and market value. New man made fluorine chemistry, new methods, and new apprecia tion of the mechanisms in which fluorine imparts unparalleled homes all give a contribution to accelerating progress in fluoropolymers. there are various tales of harrowing shut calls within the fluorine chemistry lab, specifically from the early years, and artificial demanding situations every now and then stay daunting. yet, thankfully, modem strategies and amenities have enabled major strides towards taming either the risks and artificial uncertainties, unlike earlier environmental difficulties linked to fluorocarbon refrigerants, the phenomenal homes of fluorine in polymers have nice environmental worth. a few fluoropolymers are allowing eco-friendly applied sciences corresponding to hydrogen gas cells for autos and oxygen selective membranes for cleanser diesel combustion.
