krypton n 1: a colorless element that is one of the six inert gasses; occurs in trace amounts in air [syn: krypton, Kr, atomic number 36]
The Elements (07Nov00):

krypton Symbol: Kr Atomic number: 36 Atomic weight: 83.80 Colorless gaseous element, belongs to the noble gases. Occurs in the air, 0.0001% by volume. It can be extracted from liquid air by fractional distillation. Generally not isolated, but used with other inert gases in fluorescent lamps. Five natural isotopes, and five radioactive isotopes. Kr-85, the most stable radioactive isotope, has a half-life of 10.76 years and is produced in fission reactors. Practically inert, though known to form compounds with fluorine.
