Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
Neptunium hexafluoride (NpF6) is the highest fluoride of neptunium. It is an orange volatile crystalline solid. It is relatively hard to handle, being very corrosive and radioactive. It is prepared by fluorination of Neptunium(IV) fluoride (NpF4) by powerful fluorinating agents such as elemental fluorine.
