Concerning the position of hydrogen in the periodic table

Foundations of Chemistry 8 (1):31-35 (2006)
Abstract
The placement of hydrogen in the periodic table has unique implications for fundamental questions of chemical behavior. Recent arguments in favor of placing hydrogen either separately at the top of the table or as a member of the carbon family are shown to have serious defects. A Coulombic model, in which all compounds of hydrogen are treated as hydrides, places hydrogen exclusively as the first member of the halogen family and forms the basis for reconsideration of fundamental concepts in bonding and structures. The model provides excellent descriptive and predictive ability for structures and reactivities of a wide range of substances.
