Transcript of Halogen Family Album

by Sylvia Dowdy,
Cassidy Sellner,
and Alexis Carr Halogen Family Album The Halogen family includes Father Fluorine, Cousin Chlorine, Brother Bromine, Iguana Iodine, and Aunt Asatine.
They are nonmetals with high reactivity, and are never found in their native form in nature.
Halogen means "salt forming" in Greek. The Halogens Cousin Chlorine Aunt Astatine Father Fluorine Brother Bromine Iguana Iodine Father Fluorine is the most reactive of the halogens. He is poisonous and corrosive, with an acidic odor. He is also the lightest of the halogens. Father Fluorine doesn't tan well and is a pale yellow color. He is the most powerful oxidizing agent known, and he lives in toothpaste to reduce the incidence of tooth decay. Protons: 9
Neutrons: 10
Electrons: 9 Cousin Chlorine is a toxic nonmetal. She gets sick a lot and as a result is a pale green color. She is on the swim team and won a gold metal for water purification. Protons: 17
Neutrons: 18
Electrons: 17 Brother Bromine is poisonous, corrosive, and reactive just like his Father Fluorine. He has a pungent, irritating odor, like most brothers. Typically he is a deep red color. Brother Bromine is a pyromaniac and is used in fire extinguishers. Protons: 35
Neutrons: 45
Electrons: 35 Iguana Iodine is a shiny, nonmetal with a purplish-black color. He is corrosive and poisonous like the other members of the halogen family, and is reactive with water. Iguana Iodine is best used as a disinfectant, and spends his days cleaning up after the other family members. Protons: 53
Neutrons: 74
Electrons: 53
Aunt Astatine is radioactive, and the heaviest of the halogen family. She is a solid at room temperature, and has no stable isotopes. She has been going to nursing school, and helps treat various cancers, such as lethal brain tumors. Protons: 85
Neutrons: 125
Electrons: 85 www.elmhurst.edu
