  2. Use NaCl has an example.
    Na is sodium. It is a metal, very reactive, toxic because it reacts with fluid from the body to produce caustic (NaOH) etc. Chlorine is the other element. It is an extremely poisonous gas, greenish-yellow color.
    Salt, NaCl, on the other hand, is not toxic, is a solid, white crystals, and it varies widely from the properties of its components.
