Chemistry » Classification of Matter » Metals, Metalloids And Non-Metals



In contrast to metals, non-metals are poor thermal conductors, good electrical insulators (meaning that they do not conduct electrical charge) and are neither malleable nor ductile. The non-metals include elements such as sulfur (\(\text{S}\)), phosphorus (\(\text{P}\)), nitrogen (\(\text{N}\)) and oxygen (\(\text{O}\)).
