Thermal desorption dynamics of fluorine adatoms from graphene surface were studied using the molecular dynamics method. Results show that melting process is a function of the concentration of adatoms. At low concentrations, fluorine adatoms evaporate from the surface. At high concentrations (eta > 50%) polymer chains consisting of carbon and fluorine atoms are formed from double-sided fluorinated graphene and single-sided fluorinated graphene (eta = 50%) was wrapped around itself.
