A chemical group is a group of atoms that share similar chemical properties. Most chemical groups are made up of a few atoms, but some groups can contain hundreds or thousands of atoms.

The atoms in a chemical group can share the same or different electrons. When they do, they create a molecule with unique chemical properties.

Some of the most common chemical groups are the atoms that make up water (H2O), carbon (C), nitrogen (N), and oxygen (O).

Each of these groups has a variety of important chemical properties. For example, water is a solvent and a fuel.
