This powerpoint presentation was created as part of the requirements for Chemistry 165 "Organometallics" at Harvey Mudd College during the fall semester 2009. The authors of this presentation are Thomas Avila, Mark Hendricks, and Camille Sultana, all HMC students. The activity consists of three items: a powerpoint presentation, a script that goes along with the presentation, and a literature review (annotated bibliography) for further reading. The presentation has links to figures; the actual figures have been removed to prevent copyright violations.
This presentation provides a broad outline of the history of noble gas chemistry.
