During 1813, Humphry Davy performed set of experiments and proved the presence of new element, which he called Fluorine. Though his experiments established the presence of Fluorine, he was unable to collect samples of it. In 1886, Moissan prepared Fluorine for the first time. For his contribution he was awarded Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1906.
Fluorine is strongest oxidizing agent. it brings out the highest oxidation state of other elements with which it forms compounds Eg IF7, SF6 etc.
