The manner in which fluorine reacts with iron was investigated over a very broad range of temperatures and pressures. At medium pressures of fluorine it was observed that continuous films were formed. Where the pressure of fluorine was low and the temperature relatively high, there was found to be a process of nucleation and growth of fluorides. Traces of oxygen in the gaseous phase can have a distinct effect on the kinetics of the fluoridation reaction.
