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. Elements were arranged according to
1. Increasing atomic mass (top number)
2.…read more

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.…read more

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
extracting metals which depend on their reactivity
Reduction is the process of removing oxygen from the ore using carbon
Electrolysis is the process of using electricity to extract a metal
Reactivity Series ­ metals are placed…read more

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
copper is more reactive than silver, as a result copper displaces silver
zinc and copper sulphate* Zn + CuSO4 Cu + ZnSO4
zinc + copper sulfate copper+ zinc sulfate
zinc is more reactive than copper,…read more
