An effective search for free quarks in matter requires understanding the chemistry of atoms with fractionally charged nuclei. Their chemistry is determined by interpolation in terms of the known chemistry of neutral atoms and ions. Electronegativities and ionic crystal radii of quark atoms are computed.
