Halogen is the family of salt producing elements.
Halogens are the name of a group of non-metal elements found on the Periodic Table, Group 7A (or 17). Halogens include fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine and astatine. Halogen lamps usually contain an inert (Noble) gas and a small amount of bromine or iodine surrounding the filament. It is a family of "Salt Producing" elements.
The halogen family of elements make up group VIIA of the periodic table. They are the nonmetallic chemical elements fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine. The name halogen means salt, and all of these elements, each having a valence of -1, will readily react with sodium to form the halides sodium fluoride, sodium chloride (common table salt), sodium bromide, sodium iodide, and sodium astatide.
