In this paper we show predictions for the low-energy cross-sections and transport properties for the F− in Ar/BF3 mixtures which does not exist in the literature. These data are needed for modelling in numerous applications of technologically important Ar/BF3 discharges. Results for transport coefficients as a function of E/N (E is the electric field, N the gas density) were obtained by using the Monte Carlo technique. The Monte Carlo method is applied to obtain swarm parameters at the temperature .
