Periodic Table

Scientists as far back as 1817 found patterns in the reactivity
of elements; however it was Mendeléev (1869) who first
arranged the elements in a layout recognisable as a Periodic
is due to Mendeléev
He placed the elements into 8 groups, in each group elements
reacted similarly.…

The Ionic Bond

Ionic Compounds

When a chemical reaction takes place new bonds are formed. Ionic compounds
form by the transfer of electrons from metal to non-metal atom. Charged
particles called ions are formed

When sodium chloride (NaCl) forms, one electron is transferred from sodium to
chlorine. This will…

Extraction of Metals

Ores ­ Metals are found in compounds in rocks which make up the Earth's crust, these
are called ores

Ore Formula Metal extracted
Bauxite Al2O3 Aluminium
Haematite Fe2O3 Iron

Extraction is the term for getting pure metal out of the ore; there are two methods of

Displacement Reactions

Reduction is the loss of oxygen from a compound

Oxidation is the gain of oxygen to form a compound

Magnesium and copper oxide Mg + CuO MgO + Cu


Magnesium + copper oxide magnesium oxide + copper

Displacement Examples

Iron and copper chloride Fe + CuCl2 Cu + FeCl2

iron + copper chloride copper + iron chloride

iron is more reactive than copper, as a result iron displaces copper

copper and silver nitrate* Cu + 2AgNO3 2Ag + Cu(NO3)2

copper + silver nitrate silver + copper nitrate…
