Chemistry - C2.6 The Transition elements


C2.6 The Transition Elements

They are located in the D Block. The large block in the periodice table between group 2 and group 3.

Transition Elements = Transition Metals

Physical Properties

  • Good conductors of electricity and also thermal energy.
  • Have high densities
  • Hard and Strong
  • High Melting Points (Deducting Mercury). They have higher melting points then alkali metals in Group one

Chemical Properties

Less reactive then Group 1. They do not react readily with oxygen, water or chlorine.
