How to study d and f block elements

Asked by Tiroumourougane Souprayen 24th February 2015, 6:09 PM
Answered by Expert

Entire syllabus is important in electrochemistry, p block, d block and f block elements. Please go through the NCERT questions, live test series, model tests, and chapter tests to make the concepts more understandable.

For this log on to

However you can prepare the following questions..

The important topics/sections/questions from d and f-block elements are:

  • Why is Ce (IV) good analytical reagent?
  • General trends in the properties of transition and inner transition elements.
  • Ionisation energies and ionisation enthalpies.
  • Standard electrode potential (Eo) and Chemical reactivity of both d and f block elements
  • Complex formation
  • Alloy formation
  • Salts containing oxoanions of transition metals.
  • Why is the absorption bands narrow in f elements?
  • What happens at the third ionization enthalpy of f block elements?
  • List the irregularities in the actinide series compared to the lanthanide?
  • Compare the different characteristic of lanthanides and actinides?
  • Actinide contraction is greater from element to element than lanthanide contraction. Why?
  • List some practical applications of f block elements?
  • The chemistry of the actinide elements is not as smooth as that of the lanthanides. Justify?
  • Oxidation states of lanthanoids and actinoids
