The Halogens (Chlorine, Bromine, Iodine) are in Group 7, and are therefore non metals. They all want to gain electrons to get a full outer shell. Metals want to lose electrons, so they give it to the Halogens. When electrons are transferred, what type of bonding is this? What are some features of this bonding?
When the halogens react with other non metals, they both want to gain electrons and they do this by sharing electrons. When electrons are shared, what type of bonding is this? And what are some features of this bonding?
