In 2006, IMS noble gas
equipment at Yellowknife, Canada, detected
Xenon is a noble gas
, which means that it does not typically react with other elements.
The Centre de Recherches Ptrographiques et Gochimiques (Nancy, France), the PIs host institute, is the only laboratory that is equipped with static noble gas
mass spectrometers for coupled N-noble analyses of small-sized samples, and with two secondary ionization mass spectrometers for non-destructive volatile element measurements.
Argon gas, the first noble gas
discovered, is not in itself poisonous, but in high concentrations replaces oxygen, which results in asphyxiation.
The noble gas
family of elements-helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, and radon--had previously been regarded as inert.

Einstein's invisible hand Controversial data suggest that effects from Einstein's theory of relativity might make element 114 behave like a noble gas
rather than a metal (SN: 4/12/08, p.
The first achievement is Neil Bartlett's 1962 discovery of the first noble gas

Controversial data from an experiment in Dubna, Russia, suggest instead that effects from Einstein's theory of relativity might make the element's chemistry closer to that of a noble gas
, like radon.
