Nitrogen monofluoride (fluoroimidogen) is a metastable species that has been observed in laser studies. It is isoelectronic with O2. Like boron monofluoride, it has unusual higher than single-bonded fluorine.[1][2] It is unstable with respect to its formal dimer, dinitrogen difluoride, as well as to its elements, nitrogen and fluorine. Nitrogen monofluoride is believed to be the intermediate in the decomposition reaction of fluorine azide into N2F2 and N2.
