Why isn't this compound created by reacting caesium straight with fluorine?

Seems like it be made that way, and maybe someone has even tried it. However, both Cs and F2 are extremely hazardous materials due to their reactivity. If the goal is "create a given thing from any starting material one wants", it's more practical to pick easier-to-handle stuff. Consider that if you want gaseous H2O, you could set off a giant hydrogen explosion, but in practice, most people would just boil a pot of water. DMacks 05:37, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
Also, making both Cs metal and F2 gas is very energy intensive. In theory, the energy could be recovered when they are reacted, but this would be inefficient. The above comment is right; cesium and fluorine would cause a violent explosion if mixed. -- 00:21, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

I am a tenth-grade Chemistry student, and I was wondering what the result of the ionic bonding of Cesium (explodes in water) and Fluorine (the most reactive element) is. Thank you Wikipedia :-) --- Dralwik|Have a Chat My Great Project 02:49, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

Re-reviewing this article to see if it continues to meet the current Good article criteria.

GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    a (fair representation): b (all significant views):
  5. It is stable.
  6. It contains images, where possible, to illustrate the topic.
    a (tagged and captioned): b lack of images (does not in itself exclude GA): c (non-free images have fair use rationales):
  7. Overall:
    a Pass/Fail:

I have converted the outdated reference formatting to inline citations, per WP:CITE. The article meets the citation requirement of the GA criteria. This article will keep its GA status. Cheers! Dr. Cash 06:05, 8 September 2007 (UTC)

Francium Fluoride[edit]

Does it exist? (talk) 17:27, 25 November 2008 (UTC)

Not for long. Francium's extreme radioactivity would make that problematic. Jokem (talk) 02:44, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Theoretically, it exists; it's even quite possible that it's been made. However, Fr is so hard to come by that it's unlikely to have been made on a scale where you could see it, and I'm sure it's properties are mostly unknown. Walkerma (talk) 04:09, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Lead Section[edit]

The lead section needs work. Please help by checking and providing citations for the claims to ionic character and electronegativity. Also, please rewrite the leader in encyclopedic style. Kmva (talk) 19:49, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
