Bernard cortois

Bernard Cortois (The first arresting officer) discovered iodine in 1811 While routinely processing the ash from seaweed to recover sodium and potassium compounds, he released a curious violet vapor that condensed into attractive crystals.


Iodine has a melting point of 236.7*F(113.7*C) and a boiling point of 364.0*F(184.4*C)

Iodine is a non- metal/halogen.

Iodine can also be used to to identify the presence of starch(this is usefull for making the perfect conterfit dollor bill)

Iodine does have a soft side so sometimes he helps people by bieng used as a mild anestic and helps treat thyroid cancer.
