  • Halogens and Noble Gasesby Monica Halka

    Infobase Publishing 2010; US$ 48.00

    In spite of their adjacency in the periodic table, halogens and nonmetals have very different properties. Halogens are among the most chemically reactive elements in the periodic table, exhibiting a diverse chemistry in terms of the large numbers of compounds they can form. On the other hand, noble gases are the least chemically reactive elements.... more...

  • Alkali and Alkaline Earth Metalsby Monica Halka

    Infobase Publishing 2010; US$ 48.00

    Scientists categorize the chemical elements as metals, nonmetals, and metalloids largely based on the elements' abilities to conduct electricity at normal temperatures and pressures, but there are other distinctions taken into account when classifying the elements in the periodic table. The alkali metals, for example, are metals, but have such... more...

  • Nonmetalsby Monica Halka

    Infobase Publishing 2010; US$ 48.00

    Materials that are poor conductors of electricity are generally considered nonmetals. One important use of nonmetals is the ability to insulate against current flow. The Earth's atmosphere is composed of nonmetallic elements, but lightning can break down the electron bonds and allow huge voltages to make their way to the ground. Water in its pure... more...

  • Metals and Metalloidsby Monica Halka; Brian Nordstrom

    Infobase Publishing 2010; US$ 48.00

    While scientists categorize the chemical elements as metals, nonmetals, and metalloids largely based on the elements' abilities to conduct electricity at normal temperatures and pressures, there are other distinctions that are taken into account when classifying the elements of the periodic table. The post-transition metals, for example, are metals,... more...

  • Transition Metalsby Monica Halka; Brian Nordstrom

    Infobase Publishing 2010; US$ 48.00

    More so than any of the other major groups of elements in the periodic table, the transition metals have shaped human history and have been the workhorses of industry. The discovery of metallic copper ended the Stone Age and ushered in the Bronze Age. Alloys of iron (especially steel) later took over, and the Iron Age replaced the Bronze Age. Copper,... more...
