Astatine is a radioactive halide (non-metal), not enough of it exists to determine its physical characteristics.


My science teacher says that Astatine is a nonmetal.


it's a non-metal, is what wikepedia says


Yes. A solid nonmetal of the halogen family.


Astatine is not a good conductor of electricity. This is because it is a non-metal. All non-metals do not conduct electricity, and all metals do. The one exception is carbon, which is a non-metal, but conducts electricity well.


Astatine is not a good conductor of electricity. This is because it is a non-metal. All non-metals do not conduct electricity, and all metals do. The two exceptions are carbon and silicon, which are non-metals, but conduct electricity well.


Astatine is a nonmetal and halogen.


These types of elements are called metalloids. There are a few: Boron, Silicon, Arsenic, Germanium, Antimony, Tellurium, and Astatine. Hope that's what you were looking for!



No, the guy before me was wrong, Astatine is a Metalloid and it is used in the Radiotherapy of cancer.


Astatine is a heavy halogen; no similarities with strontium (alkaline earth metal).


No. Astatine is a halogen. The alkaline earth metals are in the column second from the left of the periodic table.


Bromine would likely be more reactive. Little is known about the chemical properties of astatine because it is very rare and has a short half-life.


All of them are non-metals. However, Astatine is the most metal like of them all but so little exists it is extremely difficult to determine all properties with certainty.


It is a non-metal. All elements on the right side of the periodic table are non metals. The only exceptions are Boron(B), Silicon(Si), Arsenic(As), Tellurium(Te), and Astatine(At), all of which are metalloids; as well as the currently un-named elements, (Uub, Uut, Uuq, Uup, Uuh.) are considered "poor metals."


No, this solid is non conductor of electricity.




According to Lange, Semi-metals are: boron, silicon, germanium, arsenic, antimony, tellurium, polonium and astatine. Although, polonium and astatine, according to some authors, are not semi-metals. Gallium is a metal (4. period, 13th (IIIa) group).



It is a non metal . It is a gas



H - Non (non-metal)He -NonLi - metalBe - metalB - metalloidC - NonN - NonO - NonF - NonNe -NonNa -MetalMg - MetalAl - MetalSi - metalloidP - nonS - NonCl - NonAr - NonK - MetalCa - Metal


Nitrogen is a non-metal.


A non-metal plus a non-metal usually (but not always) produces a covalent bond.
