p-block elements

The general electronic configuration of p-block elements is ns2np1-6. Except for Helium, all the other elements in this block follow this configuration. The oxidation state of elements in the p-block is maximum when it is equal to a total number of valence electrons i.e. the sum of S and P electrons.

P block elements comprise the various families that include:

  • Boron family
  • Nitrogen family
  • Oxygen family
  • Fluorine family and
