Halogens: Group 17 of the periodic table, require one more electron to fill their outer electron shells, therefore are highly reactive, and as such can be harmful or lethal to biological organisms in sufficient quantities. Fluorine is the most reactive element in existence, even attacking glass, and forming compounds with the heavier noble gases. Halogen reactions produce salts known as halides.
