An inert gas was a type of gas that did not react with other chemicals.

Xenon was one such gas. In 2366, Data proposed that a force field containing xenon or another inert gas could be placed over an incision in Ishara Yar to remove her implanted proximity detector, which was rigged to explode when it came into contact with air. (TNG: "Legacy")
