A radioactive chemical element, one of the halogens, formed from bismuth when it is bombarded by alpha particles: it resembles iodine in its chemical properties: symbol, at at no, 85 see the periodic table of elements in the reference supplement. The element can be produced by bombarding targets made of bismuth-209 with high energy alpha particles (helium nuclei) astatine 211 is the product and has a half-life of 72 hours the most stable isotope of astatine is 210 which has a half-life of 81 hours. 85: neutrons in most abundant isotope: 125: electron shells: 2,8,18,32,18,7 : the other halogens, astatine is a nonmetal, although it shows more metallic character in its chemistry than the others astatine and the elements on either side of it, polonium and radon, have no stable isotopes too little astatine has ever been present in one. Astatine was the second synthetic element to be conclusively identified just three years after technetium, was isolated by carlo perrier and emilio segre of the university of palermo.
