Welcome to the home of NonmetalS! Nonmetal elements possess high ionization energies and have high electronegativities. They tend to gain electrons when in combination with metals, or to share electrons when in combination with other elements. They tend to be brittle in the solid phase, to have low thermal and electrical conductivities, and to lack metallic luster. Here you can find information about the chemical and physical properties of nonmetals!
