    The most electronegative element in the periodic table is fluorine (F). Electronegativity is a measure of an atom’s ability to attract electrons towards itself when it forms a chemical bond with another atom. Fluorine has the highest electronegativity value among all the elements, according to the Pauling scale. It is highly electronegative due to its small atomic size and high effective nuclear charge, which results in a strong attraction for electrons.
