Astatine Element in Periodic Table | Atomic Number Atomic Mass

Astatine

Astatine Element:

Astatine is a radioactive element and it is a member of group 17 and period 6 in the periodic table. The atomic number of astatine is 85 and it is represented by symbol At. It belongs to the halogen family. Chlorine, Iodine and Bromine are the other elements in the halogen family.  It is the heaviest element in the halogen family. Astatine is the rarest naturally occurring element in the Earth’s crust. Astatine isotopes are short-lived. Astatine -210 is the most stable isotope, with a half-life of 8.1 hours. It reacts with hydrogen to produce hydrogen astatide. The chemical properties of astatine are similar to iodine.
