Hi Student

Non-metals react with oxygen in the air to produce non-metal oxides. Here are two examples for the non-metals carbon and sulphur.

Carbon burns in air to form carbon dioxide:

carbon + oxygen → carbon dioxide

Sulphur burns in air to form sulphur dioxide:

sulphur + oxygen → sulphur dioxide

There is only one non-metal that burns in air at roo temperature. It is sodium (Na). Sodium Reacts with the oxygen of the air at room temperature to form Sodium hydrooxide.

As Fluorine is the most reactive non metal, it may react with Oxygen at room temperature. F has the highest electronegativity.
But metals like Li, Na and K reacts with oxygen at room temperature. I'm not sure if non metals react in this manner.
But Fluorine has a very high probability.
