Includes bibliographical references (page 63) and index. Examines the nature of neon and the noble gases of the periodic table's group 18, discussing the roles they play in modern science and everyday life, from liquid helium's importance to rocket science to the use of argon and krypton in lightbulbs.

Why are the gases of group 18 called the noble gases? How do krypton bulbs, neon lights, and argon lasers work? What are radon seeds and radon daughters? Find out the answers to these and other fascinating questions in 'Neon and the Noble Gases'. This book explores how these gases that have no color, no odor, and hardly ever form compounds with other elements are part of the chemical "life" of Earth.

Categories: Kids’ Chemistry Books. This title investigates why noble gases are the only gases found as single atoms and why they don't even react with themselves. The Periodic Table: Neon and the Noble Gases Hardback. By (author) Nigel Saunders. It uses full-colour illustration of the periodic table and shows the chemical symbol for each element in place, alongside its neighbours. Chemical formulae for common compounds are also shown. Information boxes and tables contain listings of facts and figures. It guides you through the discovery and isolation of each gas and recent experiments by scientists to make noble gas compounds.

The noble gases (historically also the inert gases; sometimes referred to as aerogens) make up a group of chemical elements with similar properties; under standard conditions, they are all odorless, colorless, monatomic gases with very low chemical reactivity. The six naturally occurring noble gases are helium (He), neon (Ne), argon (Ar), krypton (Kr), xenon (Xe), and the radioactive radon (Rn).

The noble gases appeared regularly in the periodic table, occurring in every eighth position, at least amongst the lighter elements. Physicists struggled to find a model that would explain this curious observation. Helium and neon were thought to have no stable compounds, until a team of scientists led by Artem Oganov from Stony Brook University in New York reported in 2017 that helium could react with sodium under extreme pressure to form Na2He. Neon, nestled in the periodic table. But it’s the stability of the noble gases which drives their practical uses.

The Noble gases are situated in the far right of the periodic table (pasted below). They are called so because they are inert, meaning that they never react or rather the energy required to make them do so is extremely high. The Noble gases are situated in the far right of the periodic table (pasted below). If you were to look into the electronic configuration of these elements, you would observe that they all have fully filled valence shells. This provides the reason fort their inertness or stability.
