Group 7 the halogens

1) As you move down the group atomic radius increases meaning there is a larger "surface area" for the vdW forces to occur between, the more vdw forces there are the stronger the bonds, leading to a higher boiling point... therefore more intermolecular bonds between each molecule.2) Halogens are strong oxidising agents - oxidising power of a halogen is a measure of the strength with which a halogen atom is able to attract and hold an electron to form a halide ion.It is a redox reaction in which each halogen atom gains one electron into a p sub shell forming a negative halide ion.It is harder for Group 7 elements to form negative ions as you go down the group because reactivity decreases leading too.... - atomic radius increasing- electron shielding increasing- increased nuclear charge is outweighed by electron shielding.3)Halogens are elements in group 7 of the periodic table, their ions are called halide ions.You can test to see if a solution contains chloride, bromide or iodide ions by using silver nitrate. If silver nitrate solution is added to a sample of water containing halide ions the silver halide is precipitated. This is because the silver halides are all insoluble in water.

Chemical Test for Halides

- Dissolve the unknown halide substane in water- Add an aqueous solution of silver Nitrate AgNo3.- Silver ions from the silver ntirate react with halide ions present forming a silver halide precipitate.- the silver halide precipitate is coloured - this colour tells us which halide is present.
