Noble gases were measured in one bulk sample, six light inclusions, and one black xenolith from four specimens of the carbonaceous chondrite Allende which cover a range in their Co-60 content of about a factor of ten. The abundance of He-3, He-4, Ne-22, Ne-20/Ne-22, Ne-21/Ne-22, Ar-36, Ar-36/Ar-38, Ar-40/Ar-36 are determined for a range of temperatures. Thermal release patterns as a function of temperature are shown for He-4, Ne-21, Ar-36, Ar-40, and He-3/He-4. The isotope abundance ratio Ar-36/Ar-40 is plotted against the percentage of Ar-38 released from fine-grained inclusions. The parent nuclides of radiogenic He-4 are finely dispersed throughout the inclusions. Neon from the inclusions contains a component deficient in Ne-20,21 which is most conspicuous at low temperatures. Ar-36/Ar-38 ratios up to 90 are observed at release temperatures about 800 C. Kr-80,82 are found enriched about 80-fold, while xenon is dominated by Xe-129.
