Abstract

Astatine At, element 85, has no stable isotopes. The longest-lived isotope is 210At, a β+-emitter with a half-life of 8.3 h, produced by the bombardment of 209Bi with high-energy α-particles. The longest-lived naturally occurring isotope is 0.9-min 219At, an α-emitter resulting from the rare α-branching of 22-min 223Fr. Chemically, At behaves as a halogen but the analogy between At and I, its next lower homologue, is not as close as one might expect from their relative positions in the Periodic Table. General reviews of astatine chemistry are given by (1 to 16).
