Abstract

The non-metals are found to the right of the Periodic Table, as shown in Table 12.1. They bond covalently with each other, usually to form individual small molecules: for example as diatomic molecules
$${{\text{O}}_{\text{2}}}{\text{,}}{{\text{N}}_{\text{2}}}{\text{,C}}{{\text{l}}_{\text{2}}}{\text{,}}{{\text{F}}_{\text{2}}}{\text{,B}}{{\text{r}}_{\text{2}}}{\text{,}}{{\text{I}}_{\text{2}}}$$
or polyatomic molecules
$${{\text{P}}_{\text{4}}}{\text{,}}{{\text{S}}_{\text{8}}}$$
.
