For many months past we have been engaged in preparing a large uantity of argon from atmospheric air by absorbing the oxygen ith red-hot copper, and the nitrogen with magnesium. The amount we have at our disposal is some 18 litres. It will be remembered that one of us, in conjunction with Dr. Norman Collie, attempted to separate argon into light and heavy portions by means of diffusion, and, although there was a slight difference in density between the ght and the heavy portions, yet we thought…

Sir William Ramsay and the Noble Gases
Sir William Ramsay was one of the world's leading scientists at the end of the 19th century, and in a spectacular period of research between 1894 and 1898, he discovered five new elements, which added a whole new group to the Periodic Table of the elements.
Noble‐Noble Strong Union: Gold at Its Best to Make a Bond with a Noble Gas Atom
Noble metals, particularly gold, provide the opportunity for experimental chemists to obtain sufficiently stable complexes with Ng at room temperature in order to characterize them by using experimental techniques and, with the intriguing bonding situation, to explore them with various computational tools from a theoretical perspective.
Capturing neon - the first experimental structure of neon trapped within a metal-organic environment.
This study shows the adsorption of this highly unreactive element within an organic or metal-organic environment and reveals the first crystallographic observation of an interaction between neon and a transition metal.
Comparative Study on the Noble-Gas Binding Ability of BeX Clusters (X = SO4, CO3, O).
The Ng-Be bond is found to be stronger compared with not only the Ng- be bond in NgBeCO3 but also that in Ng beO, except the He case, and the Ar-Rn-bound BeSO4 analogues are viable even at room temperature.
The ends of elements.
When elements 117 and 118 are finally named, should these new members of the halogen and noble gas families receive names ending in -ium as IUPAC has suggested? Brett F. Thornton and Shawn C.
Reporting the discovery of new chemical elements: working in different worlds, only 25 years apart
In his account of scientific revolutions, Thomas Kuhn suggests that after a revolutionary change of theory, it is as if scientists are working in a different world. In this paper, we aim to show that
