Chapter 8 The d- and f-block Elements talks about electronic configuration, structure, properties and so on. The members present between s- and p block elements are called d-block elements. Therefore d-Block elements have intermediate properties of s-block and p-block elements:
- They are less electropositive when compared to s-block elements
- They are more electropositive when compared to the p-block elements
- They are also known as transition elements
The f-block elements are also known as inner transition elements. There are total fourteen members arranged in two series namely lanthanides and actinides.
