In the molecule, FI [iodine monofluoride], FLUORIDE is the negative pole.Fluorine is the most electronegative element of the periodic table; it is more electronegative than iodine. iodine monofluoride is formed by the average of the covalent binding between the fluorine and iodine atoms. Due to its high electronegative value, the fluoride will attract the electron pairs more for himself that the iodine can do, so that will be the negative pole of the composite.
