Why do we call the d block elements as transition metals?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 4th Jun, 2014, 01:23: PM
In the periodic table the left hand side of the d- block elements is occupied by the reactive metals of group 1 and 2 and towards the right hand side the less reactive elements of groups 13 and 14 are present. The d-block elements form a bridge or transition between the two so they are known as the transition metals.
