Keyword Definition

Fluorides are inorganic, monatomic anions of fluorine, with the chemical formula F−, whose salts are typically white or colorless. Fluoride's salts and minerals are important chemical reagents and industrial chemicals.

Fluoride is the simplest fluorine anion.  Fluoride ions occur on Earth in several minerals, particularly fluorite, but are present only in trace quantities in bodies of water in nature.
