A metalloid is any chemical element which has properties in between those of metals and nonmetals, or that has a mixture of them
subatomic particles
In the physical sciences, subatomic particles are particles much smaller than atoms
halogens
The halogens or halogen elements are a group in the periodic table consisting of five chemically related elements: fluorine , chlorine , bromine , iodine , and astatine
