Yes, except the compound name is...,lithium fluoride. ( compound, not a molecule )

Fluorine can form compounds with every element except Helium. Many compounds with the noble gases (such as neon fluoride) are pretty unstable and most are very reactive, but they can be formed.

The compound formed fromlithium and fluorine is named lithium fluoride. (As actually spelled, "litium" and "florine" are unknown.)

F2 is not a compound; it is the chemical formula for a diatomic molecule of fluorine. Compounds refer only to substances formed out of two or more different elements. This molecule of fluorine, however, represents just one element.

Lithium bromide, LiBr, is prepared by the treatment of lithium carbonate with hydrobromic acid

Lithium bromide.Just following the ide naming rule for ionic compounds of this nature.

NO, the correct one is : Phosphide is the name of the anion formed when Phosphorus gains 3 electrons.

Lithium is the generic name for Lithium.

Fluorine (F) has only this name.

The chemical name of fluorine is fluorine. It's chemical symbol is F and its formula is F2.

Different compounds can be formed of the same elements, so the prefixes are needed to distinguish different binary compounds.

fluorine got its name from the latin word fluere, which means flow.

I would think its lithium

compounds are formed of molecules of the same sort. Organic compound is the name for the carbon compounds found in all living things. mixtures are made up of different compounds and/or elements.

The compound name for lithium nitrate is written LiNO3.

The chemical name is LIthium Chloride. It is made of Li+ and Cl- ions.
