Good one. Very creative use of the Periodic Table. In a pinch one could spell iodine like this: IODyNe
But of course that would not be correct.

Here's another way.
Iodine is the only one that begins with a vowel, but that would be english not science.
Good job.

Please, you're giving us science people a bad name. What's with this "spelt," word? Try, "spelled," instead.

spelt: v. A past tense and a past participle of spell. From "The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition Copyright 2000 by Houghton Mifflin Company" via www.dictionary.com.

If I was an editor, I would change the category of this puzzle. It has nothing to do with knowledge of the sciences. Therefore, it should be placed in language or group. However, I did quite like it...

Is iodine also the only one that's liquid at room temperature?

It is interesting how iodine can be selected, but for different reasons. Iodine is also the only element in the list whose atomic number is a prime number.

That also would've went into the Language section.
