S Block Elements • Group 1: Alkali Metals o Don’t occur in nature as elements—COMPOUNDS o Very reactive o Stored in solutions other then O or water o Form ionic compounds o Good conductors o Silver luster, soft, malleable, ductile o Low melting point • Group 2: Alkali Earth Metals o Do not occur naturally in elemental state o Occur as carbonates, phosphates, silicates and sulfates o 2 electrons in outer shell o Less reactive then alkali metals o Form ionic compounds o Good conductors o Silver luster Transition Metals (3-12) • Contain one or two electrons in their outermost shell • Good conductors • Form colored compounds Group 13—Boron Family • Don’t occur naturally in elemental form
