Key concept about period chart: Elements in a group have similar chemical properties because they have similar outer electron configurations. Note the S and P blocks (main group elements), the D block (transition elements) and the F block (inner transition elements). Electrons can be categorized as Inner core electrons – near nucleus Outer electrons – those found in highest energy level Valence electrons – participate in bonding (usually same as outer electrons). General Periodic Trends

IE = energy required to remove 1 mol of electrons from 1 mol of atoms or ions. Atom(g) ion+(g) + e- ∆ E = IE1 > 0 First IE is key to reactivity. Low IE atoms tend to form cations, while high IE atoms tend to form anions.
A. IE decreases down a group because electrons are further from nucleus and easier to ionize. IE: He > Ne > Kr A. IE increases across period as atoms get smaller. Ar > Cl > Al A. IE2 > IE1, and big gaps tell you when all valence electrons have been ionized. Be: 0.90 eV, 1.76 eV, 14.85 eV, 21.01 eV. IE high low Ionization Energy

Metals are located at the left and lower parts of the periodic chart Metals are typically hard, shiny metals with high melting points and that conduct electricity. There are exceptions: Hg, Cs (liquids at, near RT) graphite (conducts), I (shiny). Metals tend to lose electrons and form cations: Rb Rb + + e low Metallic high Conclusions
