This chapter covers the elements of Groups 17 (halogens) and 18 (noble gases) in the Periodic Table. For the elemental halogens, discussion includes their crystal structures and homopolyatomic anions and cations. The subsequent sections are on the interhalogen compounds and ions, charge-transfer complexes of halogens, the oxides and oxo compounds of halogens, etc. The final section devoted to noble-gas compounds with a comprehensive coverage on the structural chemistry of xenon.

Keywords: gold-xenon complexes; halogen oxides; halogen oxo-acids; interhalogen compounds; krypton compounds; organoxenon compounds; polyiodides; stereochemistry of xenon; xenon fluorides
