The highly reactive non-metals are in the halogen group. They just need one more electron to fill the octet. Therefore they are highly reactive. For example fluorine and chlorine. And the highly reactive metals are placed in the first group (alkali metals). For example Sodium and potassium.
Alkali metals are most reactive metals. Halogen family comprises of highly reactive non-metals.
Most non-metals are not highly reactive or an completely inert. However, the Halogens in Group 17 are reactive with nearly every substance on the planet.
Magnesium is one of the more reactive metals; it rarely exists in nature elementally.
No, nonmetals arent reactive because the non metals arent metals and they are gases!
The most reactive non metals are Halogens which may combine most of the metals as well as non metals.
reactive metals react with water and acids,but the non reactive doesnt. dude that isn't a proper answer
Only the noble gases are considered non-reactive in general and none of them are classified as metals.
Group 17 - the Halogens
Gold and platinum are less reactive metals but not absolutely non-reactive.
The term non-reactive is not correct; less reactive metals are: platinum metals (Pt, Rh, Pd, Os, Ru, Ir) and gold.
Gold is a less reactive metal but not non-reactive; all metals are reactive.
inert metals are metals that are non reactive
The term non-reactive is not correct; less reactive metals are: platinum metals (Pt, Rh, Pd, Os, Ru, Ir) and gold : )
phospohorous is the highly reactive non metal.
Yes, all the metals are reactive but the differences in reactivity are very important.
They are one electron away from being stable, are non-metals, and they are most reactive of the non-metals
Group 17 (the halogens) are all highly reactive non-metals.
Plutonium is a reactive chemical element.
Group 1 elements or alkali metals are the most reactive metals Halogens or group 17 elements are the most reactive non metals
most reactive non metel group is halogens.
Atoms of all elements, except the noble gases, are reactive.
Group-17 are most reactive non-metals. They form halogens.
All the metals are reactive but differences in reactivity of metals are important. Some less reactive metals are: platinum, rhodium, palladium, osmium, iridium, ruthenium, gold.
Non metals usually form covalent bonds with other non metals and ionic bonds with reactive metals.
