there's a lot of hyperbolic popsci writing about dangerous chemicals that makes it sound like they should never be touched when, in reality, they just demand respect. Fluorine is not one of those chemicals.
If it's not Fluoride ion or a C-F bond (literally the strongest bond in ochem, aka Teflon), I won't work with it. Full stop, not worth the risk. HF Acid dissolves *glass,* y'alle!
