  • they're dense and strong and shiny
  • transition metals are much less reactive than group 1 metals  dont react much with water or oxygen for example
  • also much denser, stronger and harder than group 1 metals and have a much HIGHER MELTING point

They often have more than one ion

The compounds are very colourful

the are colourful due to the different ion they contain, potassium chromate is yellow, potassium manganate s purple, copper sulphate is blue
