In chemistry, a nonmetal (or non-metal) is a chemical element that mostly lacks metallic attributes physically, nonmetals tend to be highly volatile (easily vaporized), have low elasticity, and are good insulators of heat and electricity chemically, they tend to have high ionization energy and electronegativity values, and gain or share. Appearance antimony is a semi-metal in its metallic form it is silvery, hard and brittle uses antimony is used in the electronics industry to make some.
Metalloids are brittle, lustrous metallic elements that exhibit semiconductive properties unlike metals, however, they are neither malleable nor ductile and, although they do not readily alloy with metals, each metalloid selectively compounds with certain metal elements to form alloys being too.
