2 Group VIIA elements include fluorine chlorine bromine iodine astatine Introduction halogens (Salt producers)
3 Astatine chemistry not much known radioactive the total amount present in the Earth's crust is probably less than 30 g at any one time. Introduction
4 Halogens are p-block elements outermost shell electronic configuration of ns 2 np 5
5 one electron short of the octet structure Halogens are p-block elements
6 In the free elemental state Introduction they complete their octets by sharing their single unpaired p-electrons
7 they either gain an additional electron to form halide ions or When halogens react with other elements share their single unpaired p- electrons to form single covalent bonds

9 -1 is the most common oxidation state of halogens in their compounds Ionic : NaF, NaCl, NaBr, NaI Covalent :HF, HCl, HBr, HI High Electronegativity / Electron Affinity
10 Variable Oxidation State All halogens (except fluorine ) can expand their octet of electrons by utilizing the vacant, energetically low-lying d-orbitals.

16 Fluorine ( 1) cannot expand its octet no low-lying empty d orbitals available the energy required to promote electrons into the third quantum shell is very high Absence of HFO, HFO 2, HFO 3, HFO 4

18 Variations in melting point and boiling point of the halogens
19 Variation in Physical Properties 1. Melting point / boiling point down the group The molecular size down the group The electron cloud is more easily polarized Induced dipoles are formed more easily Stronger London dispersion forces
20 2. Colour becomes darker down the group HalogenF2F2 Cl 2 Br 2 I2I2 Colour Pale yellow Greenish yellow Reddish brown Violet black
21 Appearances of halogens at room temperature and pressure: chlorine chlorine
22 Appearances of halogens at room temperature and pressure: bromine bromine
23 Appearances of halogens at room temperature and pressure: iodine iodine
24 Colour All halogens coloured the absorption of radiation in the visible light region of the electromagnetic spectrum The colour is due to the unabsorbed radiation in the visible light region
25 Colour Fluorine atom has the smallest size absorbs the radiation of relatively high frequency (i.e. blue light ) appears yellow (the unabsorbed radiation)
26 Colour Atoms of other halogens larger sizes absorb radiation of lower frequency
27 Colour Iodine absorbs the radiation of relatively low frequency (i.e. yellow light ) appears violet

34 3. Electron Affinity down the group HalogenFClBrIAt E.A. kJ/mol
35 The number of electron shells and size of atoms down the group The nuclear attraction for the additional electron down the group Electron affinity from Cl to I
36 Atoms of fluorine have the smallest size among the halogens The addition of an extra electron to the small quantum shell(n=2) results in great repulsion among the electrons. Fluorine has a lower electron affinity than Cl and Br.

39 Fluorine has the highest electronegativity because it is the most reactive elements. The electronegativity of fluorine is arbitrarily assigned as 4.0.
40 Variation in Chemical Properties Reactivity : F 2 > Cl 2 > Br 2 > I 2 React by gaining electrons Oxidizing power : F 2 > Cl 2 > Br 2 > I 2
41 1. Reactions with Sodium All halogens combine directly with sodium to form sodium halides the reactivity decreases down the group from fluorine to iodine
42 Fluorine react explosively to form sodium fluoride 2Na(s) + F 2 (g) 2NaF(s) 1. Reactions with Sodium
43 Chlorine reacts violently to form sodium chloride 2Na(s) + Cl 2 (g) 2NaCl(s) 1. Reactions with Sodium

53 Q.2(a) Variation:bond enthalpy decreases from Cl 2 to I 2 Reason : The size of atoms and thus the bond length between atoms increases down the group. The shared electron pair is getting further away from the bonding nuclei. weaker bond and lower B.E. F 2 has an exceptionally small B.E. because the F atoms are so small that the repulsive forces between lone pairs on adjacent bonding atoms become significant.
54 Q.2(b) The lattice enthalpy becomes less negative down the group. It is because the anionic radius, r -, increases down the group.
55 F 2 reacts explosively even in the dark at 200 C Cl 2 reacts explosively in sunlight Br 2 reacts moderately on heating with a catalyst I 2 reacts slowly and reversibly even on heating 2.1Reactions with hydrogen X 2 + H 2 (g) 2HX(g)
56 Q.3 Explain the extreme reactivity of fluorine in terms of the bond enthalpies of F–F and H–F bonds. Fluorine has an exceptionally small F-F bond enthalpy. Thus, the activation energy of its reaction with hydrogen is also exceptionally small. Hydrogen fluoride has the highest bond enthalpy among the hydrogen halides. Thus, the formation of HF from H 2 and F 2 is the most exothermic. The energy released from the reaction further speeds up the reaction. F 2 + H 2 (g) 2HF(g)
57 Chlorine removes hydrogen completely from turpentine(C 10 H 16 ) C 10 H 16 (l) + 8Cl 2 (g) 10C(s) + 16HCl(g)
58 Q.4 The cotton wool bursts into flames and the gas jar is filled with dark smoke (of carbon) and white fumes (of HCl) HCl gives dense white fumes with ammonia.
59 2.2Reactions with phosphorus F 2 + P PF 5 Cl 2 + P PCl 3 + PCl 5 Br 2 + P PBr 3 I 2 + P PI 3 F 2 is the strongest oxidizing agent, it always oxidizes other elements to their highest possible oxidation states.
60 2.2Reactions with phosphorus F 2 + P PF 5 Cl 2 + P PCl 3 + PCl 5 Br 2 + P PBr 3 I 2 + P PI 3 Br 2 and I 2 are NOT strong enough to oxidize P to its highest possible oxidation state.
61 2.3Reactions with xenon Fluorine reacts directly with all non-metals except nitrogen, helium, neon and argon. It will even react with diamond and xenon on heating. C(diamond) + 2F 2 CF 4 Xe + F 2 XeF 2 Xe + 2F 2 XeF 4 Xe + 3F 2 XeF 6
62 2.3Reactions with xenon It is because (a)Xenon can expand its octet by utilizing vacant, low-lying d-orbitals.
63 By VB Theory, To form two Xe-F bonds in XeF 2, a 5p electron in Xe has to be promoted to a 5d orbital. Xe 5s5p F 2s2p Xe* 5s5p 5d
64 By VB Theory, To form four Xe-F bonds in XeF 4, two 5p electrons in Xe have to be promoted to two 5d orbitals. Xe 5s5p 5d Xe** 5s5p 5d
65 By VB Theory, To form six Xe-F bonds in XeF 6, three 5p electrons in Xe have to be promoted to three 5d orbitals. Xe 5s5p 5d Xe*** 5s5p 5d
66 2.3Reactions with xenon The gap between np and nd sub-shells down the group, thus, Tendency to form bonds down the group : - Xe > Kr > Ar > Ne > He the promotion of electrons from np sub-shell to nd sub-shell becomes easier down the group.
67 Xe 5s5p 5d Xe*** 5s5p 5d Also, the energy released by forming more single bonds outweighs the energy required for promoting 5p electrons to 5d orbitals.

114 Interpretation:- Consider the reaction, 2H–X + H 2 SO 4 X–X + SO 2 + 2H 2 O The feasibility of the reaction depends on 1.the strength of H–X bond to be broken the stronger the bond, the less feasible is the rx 2.the strength of X–X bond to be formed the stronger the bond, the more feasible is the rx
115 2H–X + H 2 SO 4 X–X + SO 2 + 2H 2 O The feasibility of the reaction depends on 1.the strength of H–X bond the stronger the bond, the less feasible is the rx 2.the strength of X–X bond the stronger the bond, the more feasible is the rx The reaction with HF is least feasible because 1.H-F bond is the strongest 2.F-F bond is exceptionally weak due to repulsion between lone pairs of bonding atoms.

141 For other HX acids, acidity as concentration It is due to the significant interaction between X and H 3 O + at high concentrations the effective concentration of H 3 O + For HF, interaction between F and H 3 O + is significant even at low concentrations due to the smaller size of F .
