Interhalogen compound,structure and properties of interhalogen?

Interhalogen-Compound-definition-and-diagram

 Interhalogen Compound: The halogen due to the difference in electronegativity , combine with another to form a number of binary compound known as interhalogen compound. AB, AB3, AB5 and AB7 are classified as four forms of such interhalogen compounds. Where A and B are two different halogen. The Halogen of lower…
