Water is the simplest compound of the two most common reactive elements, consisting of just two hydrogen atoms attached to a single oxygen atom. Liquid water, however, is the most extraordinary substance. This is a comprehensive online book on water.
The noble gases make 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 noble gases: helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, radon.
