Chemistry unit 5 Transition metals

  • These are the d block elements.
  • They are used in a variety of industrial processes and transitions metals and their compounds have a wide number of uses. 
  • When transition elements lose electrons to form positive ions. 
  • Transition metals lose their 4s electrons before their 3d electrons. 
  • They form ions with more than one oxidation state.
  • They all can form compounds with metal ions in the 2+ oxidation state.
  • Transition metal compounds form complex ions. 
  • Complex ions consist of a central metal ion surrounded by…
