18.6: Group 18 Elemental Solids

  • Page ID
  • Once cooled below their respective melting points, the Group 18 elements form an ordered solid. Group 18 elemental solids are useful in providing a place for electrons to become trapped or reactions to take place. Some examples include the use of solid argon to study highly reactive molecules, and solid neon to allow reaction and formation of xenon hydrides.
