Most elements need to have a complete octet of valence electrons in order to survive and be stable. Only certain elements such as sulfur, phosphorus, chlorine and silicon can hold more than 8 valence electrons and form a stable expanded octet and elements such as hydrogen can only handle 2 valence electrons.
