Compound should be Ca(OF)2...calcium hypofluorite or calcium oxyfluoride...similar to ''bleaching powder'', Ca(OCl)2...calcium hypochlorite or calcium oxychloride. (Note the ''t''s and ''d''s are not typos.)

Your compound, if it exists, would be an ion, Ca(OF)+...Ca is ++, (OF) is -...possibly named calcium monooxyfluoride ion.
