On the cosmic origin of fluorine
Summary, in English
The cosmic origin of fluorine, the ninth element of the periodic table, is still under debate. The reason for this fact is the large difficulties in observing stellar diagnostic lines, which can be used for the determination of the fluorine abundance in stars. Here we discuss some recent work on the chemical evolution of fluorine in the Milky Way and discuss the main contributors to the cosmic budget of fluorine.
