only the largest noble gas atoms can be made to react chemically. but it is not stable and will result in decompostion.

can please explain me what they are trying to say. i'm so confused!!!!!

    Noble gas atoms rarely react with other chemicals and form compounds. When they do, the resulting compounds are usually unstable and do not last.

    Some larger noble gases (specifically Krypton and Xenon) do form certain stable compounds.
