Question

# What are the similarities in properties of elements in Halogen family?

Solution

## All in this group are characterized by the presence of $$7e^-$$ in an outer shell, and hence have the ability to gain an $$e^-$$ to form negative ions w/ a completed octet of valence $$e^-$$.All these elements share traits of being very reactive and in particular form substitution compounds w/ numerous organic compounds. Although these elements also have other valences all have a $$-1$$ valence in common.Chemistry
