It has been the aim of the authors to prepare a text-book constructed along lines which have become recognized as best suited to an elementary treatment. At the same time they have made a consistent effort to make the text clear in outline.

I have tried to make selection of the most fundamental facts and principles of chemistry, and to present these in such a way that the student must constantly use his senses to discover facts and his reason in drawing correct inferences.
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.
