78 Chapter 12 Group 1A: The Alkali Metals The sections and subsections of this chapter are listed below. 12.1 Discovery and Isolation of the Elements 12.2 Fundamental Properties and the Network Hydrides, Oxides, Hydroxides, and Halides Application of the Uniqueness Principle and Diagonal Effect 12.3 Reduction Potentials and the Network 12.4 Peroxides and Superoxides Peroxides Superoxides 12.5 Reactions and Compounds of Practical Importance 12.6 Selected Topic in Depth: Metal-Ammonia Solutions Chapter 12 Objectives You should be able to briefly relate how and by whom the alkali metals were discovered rationalize the trends in radii, ionization energies, electron affinities, and electronegativities of the group describe the general nature of the hydrides, oxides, hydroxides, and halides of the group describe and represent the uniqueness of lithium in the group describe and represent the diagonal relationship between lithium and magnesium define and use the concepts of oxidation, reduction, oxidizing agent, reducing agent, and standard reduction potential describe the role of the standard hydrogen electrode in defining standard reduction potentials describe and represent the relationship among standard reduction potential, change in free energy, and the spontaneity of a reaction predict the spontaneity of an oxidation-reduction reaction by analyzing its net reduction potential explain the trends in the reduction potentials of the alkali metals explain why the lighter alkali metals are less reactive than the heavier describe and represent the general preparation, structure, and uses of hydrogen peroxide describe the occurrence and uses of superoxides describe the application of various alkali metals as fertilizers, treatment for bipolar disorders, reducing agents, battery components, and agents for chronometric procedures rationalize the properties of alkali/alkaline earth metal liquid ammonia solutions in terms of the solvated electron describe and give several examples of electrides and alkalides
