  • It can be seen that they have some of the highest electronegativities and therefore hold their electrons close, resulting in their relatively small atomic radii, but they are eager to obtain their octets, and are willing to do so by bonding with other atoms to form molecules.

  • The noble gases (helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, and radon) possess full octets, which they guard closely (notice their high ionization energies and small atomic radii), and tend not to interact with other atoms.
