Alkali Metals and Transition Metals
This title covers the two groups of metals you need to know about in detail for your GCSEs. These are the alkali metals and the transition metals. We will first describe the general properties of the alkali metals, then discuss in more detail how these metals react with water, before moving on to discuss the properties of the transition metals. This leads on to looking at the wide-ranging uses of these metals. To finish, we will compare the two groups to highlight the similarities and differences between them.

Curriculum and Exam Board Information
- Comparison of properties of alkali metals with other metals
- Like other metals transition metals are good conductors of heat and electricity and can be bent or hammered into shape
- make predictions from the reactivity series of metals, i.e. K, Na, Ca, Mg, Al, Zn, Fe, Cu based on reactions with oxygen, water/steam, and dilute acids (hydrochloric and sulphuric) as appropriate, displacement reactions
- Pattern in reactivity of the alkali metals
- Physical properties of the transition metals
- Properties of common compounds of alkali metals
- Properties of transition metals
- Reactions of alkali metals with water
- Relative reactivity of alkali metals with water
- The elements in the central block of the periodic table are known as transition metals
- The low melting points of alkali metals
- Transition Metals
- transition metals are useful as structural materials and for making things that must allow heat or electricity to pass through them easily
- Transition metals form coloured compounds
- Uses of transition metals
- Uses of transition metals and their compounds
