Highly reactive non metals?
August 19, 2012 1:43PM
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.
