The middle layer of the periodic table includes d block elements. Inner d-orbits of Group 3 to 13 are filled gradually. The f block elements are found outside and at the bottom of the periodic table. The 5f and 4f orbitals are filled gradually in these elements. The filling of 3d, 4d, and 5d orbitals differentiates the three series of transition elements. They have a high boiling point as well as a high melting point.
The electronic configuration, occurrence, and general features of transition elements will be discussed first in this article, with a focus on trends in the properties of the first row (3d) transition metals, as well as the synthesis and properties of several key compounds. Following that, the general properties of the inner transition metals' electrical configurations, oxidation states, and chemical reactivity will be considered. Given below are the metallic characteristics exhibited by transition elements:
High tensile strength
Following are the sub-topics covered in the d block and f block elements:
Electronic configuration of d-block elements - The chapter helps remember all of the configurations and attributes of the elements in the same group.
