The main group (s- and p-block) elements are among the most diverse in the Periodic Table. Ranging from non-metallic gases (e.g., hydrogen and fluorine), through semi-metals (e.g., metalloids such as... More > silicon) to highly reactive metals (e.g., sodium and potassium). The study of the main group elements is important for a number of reasons. On an academic level they exemplify the trends and predictions in structure and reactivity that are the key to the Periodic Table. The main group elements represent the most prevalent elements in the Earth’s crust, as well as most of the key elements of life, and have enormous industrial, economic, and environmental importance. In this regard an understanding of the chemistry of the main group elements is vital for students within science, engineering, and medicine; however, it is hoped that those who make political and economic decisions would make better ones if they had a fraction of the knowledge of the world around them.< Less

In the mid sixties Lotus were trying to distance themselves from their kit-car heritage. The growing respectability of their productions cars (in particular the Elan) meant that a new class of... More > customer was buying Lotus that didn’t want to be associated with the Lotus Seven.As a consequence Lotus’ founder, Colin Chapman, decided that there should be a replacement for the Seven. Given Lotus’ on track success, it was reasonable that this new car should feature a mid-engine rear wheel drive design giving the customer a link to the highly successful F1 cars of the time. However, the resulting car, the Europa (Figure 2), was produced by the main Lotus Cars factory rather than by Lotus Components, the division responsible for the Seven.< Less
