At present 110 elements are known and theoretically many more are possible, 81 of these are stable (non-radioactive) and 92 occur naturally (the other 18 are synthesized in particle accelerators). They are divided into three main groups: metals (75 percent of the total), non-metals, and metalloids (weakly metallic). The fundamental part of an element is called an atom, whereas that of a compound is called a molecule.

  6. Each of more than one hundred substances that cannot be chemically interconverted or broken down into simpler substances and are primary constituents of matter.
