I have no university degree in chemistry and I’m curious about some examples - explained with the applicable rules (or the exception from the existing rules) - for the following statements (from this answer):
- If fluoride is oxidized, it loses an single electron.
- If fluoride acts as a base and donates a pair of electrons, it shares a pair of electrons.
Now, what are some examples of
- oxidation of fluoride?
- fluoride acting as a base?
