  1. Halide

    A halide is a binary compound, of which one part is a halogen atom and the other part is an element or radical that is less electronegative than the halogen, to make a fluoride, chloride, bromide, iodide, or astatide compound. Many salts are halides. All Group 1 metals form halides which are white solids at room temperature. A halide ion is a halogen atom bearing a negative charge. The halide anions are fluoride, chloride, bromide, iodide and astatide. Such ions are present in all ionic halide salts. See chloride, bromide, fluoride, and iodide
