The author has tried to describe minimum chemical facts and concepts that are necessary to understand modern inorganic chemistry. The book describes important compounds along the periodic table, and readers are expected to learn typical ones...
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.
