Yes, it is possible : Fluoride is the reduced form of fluorine. Both organic and inorganic compounds containing the element fluorine. Fluoride, like other halides, is a mono-valent ion negative 1 charge. Sodium Fluoride is used as a rodenticide and insecticide (mainly for roaches and ants), as a disinfectant for fermentation apparatus in breweries and distilleries. Hope it make sense?
