Interhalogens, compounds of two halogen elements, are extremely powerful oxidizing agents and are often quite unstable. For this reason, they do not find much use. The most important industrially is chlorine trifluoride, which has been used in rockets and incendiary bombs as well as for the manufacture of uranium hexafluoride for nuclear applications.
