Why Maths is Handy to be a Chemist

Today's attack on my inner pedant comes from the BBC's Science Pages.

Apparently Bromine is the least-famous of the four halogen elements. I beg to differ.

The evidence from this article is that Astatine is the least famous of the four halogens.

What with it being the fifth one.


  1. Even worse: the Wiki article on halogens you link to gets the two Greek words for 'salt' and 'come to be' BOTH wrong

  2. Haven't got a scooby what you're on about. Sounds as though you've been taking some of those Halogens that you write about?
