    Patterns of electronegativity in the Periodic Table The most electronegative element is fluorine. If you remember that fact, everything becomes easy, because electronegativity must always increase towards fluorine in the Periodic Table. Note: This simplification ignores the noble gases. Historically this is because they were believed not to form bonds - and if they don't form bonds, they can't have an electronegativity value. Even now that we know that some of them do form bonds, data sources still don't quote electronegativity values for them. http://www.chemguide.co.uk/atoms/bonding/electroneg.html
