The boiling point of Fluorine is 85.06 °C. But fluorine is the most reactive element there is so it always occurs in combination with something else. The things added to drinking water here in the US are Sodium fluoride (NaF) (boils at 1700 °C), stannous(II) fluoride (SnF2) (boils at 850 °C) and sodium monofluorophosphate (Na2PO3F)(boiling point is 1700 °C. The boiling point of the compounds is so high because of the extremely high reactivity of the element fluoride. So you do not get rid of fluoridization.You do kill bacteria, rotofers and other possibly harmful living things if water is boiled. So don't drink unchlorinated water without boiling it first. (Since chlorine is slightly less reactive than fluorine, it is also not boiled off (boiling point of elemental chlorine is 239.11 °C according to one source which is probably for a compound. The one given for elemental chlorine is -34ºC. I do not know how it is gotten into water by way of Sodium hypochlorite. I believe this is boiled off.
" Perhaps a proper-chemist can help me out here?"Will I do?
