Noble Gases
The outer shell is holding all the electrons that can fit
Noble Gases
Used to make lasers and store front lights
Noble Gases
Have low melting and boiling points
Noble Gases
They occur in nature as colorless, odorless, and tasteless gases
Noble Gases
Are remarkably unreactive
Noble Gases
Also called inert or rare
Alkaline Metals
Also called Earth metals
Alkaline Metals
Second most reactive group of elements
Alkaline Metals
Group IIA of the Periodic Table
Alkaline Metals
Have 2 electrons in the outer shell
Lanthanides
Series of transition metals often found as minerals, used to make alloys
Lanthanides
Sometimes called rare Earth elements that have a high luster and conductivity
Transition Metals
Combine with other elements to form colored compounds
Transition Metals
Largest group of metals
Alkali Metals
Group 1A of the Periodic Table
Alkali Metals
All have one electron in its outer shell
Alkali Metals
They must be stored in oil because they are very reactive to oxygen and water
Poor metals
Some of the elements in the group are metalloids
Actinides
Series of radioactive Transition metals
Halogens
Group VIIB (7B) of the Periodic Table
Halogens
Have strong unpleasant odor and burn the skin easily
Halogens
Have 7 electrons in their outer shell (7 valence electrons)
Halogens
Used to make drugs, dyes, antiseptics, and film
Halogens
Means salt former
