Someone made an edit to this article saying it is sometimes thought of as an oxide rather than a fluoride. How widely believed is this?? Georgia guy 22:55, 21 May 2005 (UTC)

  • I would say that it is a legitimate edit. It is not really useful to classify it as either, but there you go, we have to call it something! Physchim62 23:37, 4 September 2005 (UTC)


the density is wrong is to high dens for agas drom oxygen and fluorin —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:14, 8 May 2010 (UTC)


Note that it cannot be classified as an oxide because of larger electronegativity of the fluorine. However, covalent-bonded electrons are not moved to fluorine atoms almost at all, so the molecule is not polarized. But formal, it`s oxygen difluoride, not difluorine oxide. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:18, 14 February 2013 (UTC)


The given reaction equations and products in the section "reactions" are somewhat inconsistent. Is sulfur oxidized to the state +4 or +6? And why does a reaction of OF2 with a reducing agent release elemental fluorine but reduce the oxygen? -- (talk) 23:17, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

One could say that there are whiners and there are editors. Which one do you choose? Get book and look it up! --Smokefoot (talk) 01:38, 8 September 2013 (UTC)
