Introduction Uses of Iron, copper, aluminium, zinc, and many more are very important for our daily life usages as well as in industrial scale. Earth's crust is composed of several minerals and some of the metals and its ores are determined as the major resources for humanity. Metals such as Iron, Copper, Aluminium, and Zinc are inorganic compounds that are found below the earth’s surface and are easily identified by evaluating their properties. These metals can be identified through their properties like hardness, toughness, ductility, malleability, elasticity, tensile strength, brittleness, and compressive strength. What are p-block and ... Read More

Introduction Uses of Boron and Aluminium are mainly consists of applications in textile sector and in the preservation of wood. Boron is a very uncommon compound in this world because of the trace formation of stars and the big bang in the solar system. The Atomic number is five for boron in chemistry and the aluminium atomic number is thirteen. Aluminium is available in igneous rocks as micas, feldspars and feldspathoids in form of aluminosilicate. The hydrate aluminium oxide is the primary element of bauxite from there aluminium is mainly formed. Boron is commonly found in nature as a ... Read More

Introduction Uses of benzene are mostly in tire and paper industries. The organic compound benzene was first discovered in the 19th century. The person who was able to find this organic compound is a scientist from England. This scientist is Michael Faraday who illuminated a gas to produce benzene. In this case, the process of derivation followed by Michael Faraday was to take a liquid apart from a condensed state of oil and gas. Structure and formula of benzene The structure of benzene is consisted of cyclic unsaturated hydrocarbon. The ratio of carbon and hydrogen present in the ... Read More

Introduction Uses of alloys are very much significant in human life. All substances that exist are formed primarily by elements. As long as the use of metal elements has increased, its alloys become equally useful and the count of alloys is increasing day by day. Meaning of alloy Alloy can be defined as a mixture combined with two or more elements. Elements with distinct materials are used to prepare alloy. It can be composed using a couple of metal substances or by combining a metal with a non-metal. These mixtures are prepared through several steps of melting, pouring, solidification, and ...

Charcoal and activated charcoal are two forms of carbon that are commonly used for a variety of purposes. While they are both derived from carbon-rich materials, there are significant differences between the two. In this essay, we will discuss the main differences between charcoal and activated charcoal. What is Charcoal? Charcoal is a black, porous material that is made by burning organic materials such as wood, peat, coconut shells, or sawdust in the absence of oxygen. This process, known as pyrolysis, removes water, volatile compounds, and other impurities from the organic material, leaving behind a highly carbonized substance. Charcoal has ... Read More

Introduction Materials accumulate for the composition of all the objects in the surroundings. The associated properties of the materials are different from one another. Most of the finished goods are made of up raw materials that have their unique traits which are mixed to make a final unit of product. The classification of the properties is done based on various physical as well as chemical properties. What is a Material? Materials are referred to as the building blocks of the finished products available in the market. The material in itself is a broad spectrum to discuss. The classification of the ... Read More

Introduction The molecular orbitals that help in the formation of the band seem to have the same energy as the atomic orbitals. This theory mainly describes the fact that electrons can jump from the valence band to the conduction band. This process happens when the temperature remains ordinary because it can help the solids to conduct electricity. The conductivity mainly depends upon the gap between the valence band and conduction band. Description of Metal Band Theory Band theory is considered a concept that focuses on the matter of solids. This theory is also known as zone theory and it shows ... Read More

Introduction The availability of aluminium in a pure state is very rate due to its chemical properties. Additionally, it is one of the most abundant compounds on the Earth due to its availability of it as a compound state with other materials. “Alum and aluminium oxide” are the two most frequent particles discovered as the chemical properties of this material. This tutorial helps understand the usefulness of aluminium in the different prospective and shares knowledge regards the chemical properties of aluminium. Information about Aluminium The electron number of the aluminium is 13, which refers to that; it has exactly 13 ... Read More

Chemical properties of Metals

Updated on 13-Oct-2022 11:19:47
Introduction At present, there are 118 elements that are known to us and from them, 92 elements occur naturally. The other metals within the total list are prepared with the help of artificial methods. However, elements are classified into several categories, that includes, metals, metalloids and non-metals based on their respective properties and are correlated with respect to their periodic table. There are several physical and chemical properties, that are noticed among metals. What are metals? Both metals and non-metals are found within our surroundings and are quite essential in their presence. Metals can be defined as the substances that ... Read More
