Helium Oxidation Number

The Oxidation number of Helium is 0 in the Mendeleev oxidation table. Oxidation number of a chemical element is also called as valence, is the number of electrons gained or lost when forming compounds. Helium has an oxidation number of 0.

A helium atom only has one energy level (#1), with one sublevel (s). The 1s level can hold only 2 number of electrons. With this two electrons, the outer energy level of helium gets filled. Because of this, helium is said to conform to the octet rule.
