More info

Beryllium Fluoride (BeF2) Powder is a white crystalline powder that exhibits excellent solubility in water. It serves as a critical component of molten salt fuels and secondary thermal agents utilized in molten salt reactors within the atomic industry. Beryllium fluoride can be produced through the thermolysis of ammonium beryllium fluoride, (NH4)2BeF4. In the form of fluoro beryllate glass, beryllium fluoride possesses the lowest refractive index for a solid at room temperature, measuring 1.275. It also exhibits the lowest dispersive power for a solid at 0.0093.
