Modern Periodic Table

All chemical elements of the modern periodic table are categorized into different categories like 1)Alkali Metals 2)Transition Metals 3) Alkaline Earth Metals 4) Post-Transition Metals 5) Lanthanide Series 6) Actinide Series 7) Metalloid 8) Nonmetals. The periodic table is a tabular arrangement of elements where all the elements are arranged in the form of rows (Group) and columns (Period) according to their atomic numbers. There are total 118 elements in the periodic table, out of which 94 elements are Metals, 7 are Metalloids and 17 are Non-Metals. All types of metals are included in the periodic table. In the modern periodic table, all metals are placed under p-block at extreme right, s-block at extreme left, d-block in the middle and f-block at the bottom. Apart from that, here you can compare properties of metals on the basis of different characteristics and significance.

What are Metals?

What are metals? Basically, all metals are shiny, malleable and opaque elements in nature. They act as a good conductor of Heat and electricity. Metals have distinct properties & characteristics are categorized under different categories like alkali metals, transition metals, ferrous or non-ferrous Metals, Magnetic Metals, or even Toxic Metals, etc. Properties of metals like physical, chemical, atomic, electromagnetic, mechanical, biological, optical, thermal vary with respect to every metal. At comparisonofmetals.com, you get the facility to compare these minute differences between all such types of metals with respect to their thermal response, relevant facts, their various uses, periodic table position and much more! The information about various Lanthanide and Actinide series metals, synthetic and rare earth metals is made available to offer you a comprehensive comparison between these metals.
