Tetrafluoroborate is the anion BF−4. This tetrahedral species is isoelectronic with tetrafluoroberyllate (BeF2−4), tetrafluoromethane (CF4), and tetrafluoroammonium (NF+4) and is valence isoelectronic with many stable and important species including the perchlorate anion, ClO−4, which is used in similar ways in the laboratory. It arises by the reaction of fluoride salts with the Lewis acid BF3, treatment of tetrafluoroboric acid with base, or by treatment of boric acid with hydrofluoric acid.   Wikipedia
