Handling Liquid Fluorine in Rocket Applications
Fluorine is extremely attractive as the oxidizer in rocket propulsion systems in view of the 40% performance increase that may be realized by replacing present-day operational propellants with a high-energy combination. Development of fluorine propulsion systems has, however, been approached cautiously because of concern expressed in view of its extreme reactivity and toxicity.
