Chapter 6. Noble gas chemistry of planetary materials
Julia A. Cartwright
Holding up the right hand side of the periodic table, the noble gases reside in a seemingly inert paradise of full-electron-shell-utopia. Not to be fooled by their outwardly disinterested, yet colourful misdemeanour, they provide a wealth of information about the Solar System and its evolution. In this chapter, the noble gases are introduced and their uses in the planetary sciences summarized.
