  • Engineers develop 'chameleon metals' that change surfaces in response to heat

    Just like a chameleon changes its skin color in response to its environment, engineers have found a way for liquid metal - and potentially solid metal - to change its surface structure in response to heat. Treating particles of liquid metal alloys with heat causes them to roughen their surfaces with more

  • Metal with unusual properties

    A Chinese-German research cooperation involving the University of Augsburg has demonstrated properties in a metal that cannot be explained by the standard theory. The results were obtained on a special metallic compound with unusual magnetic characteristics – scientists call it mag-netic frustration more

  • Speeding up the hydrogen production by the magic topological surface states

    Water electrolysis could provide high-quality hydrogen gas that can be used in fuel cells directly. However, since noble metals, such as platinum and iridium, are currently needed to initiate such a reaction, the cost is very high. "Obviously, catalysts that are low-cost with high-activity are neede more

Infographics Metals

Group 2 Elements

The second of a series of infographics on the groups of the periodic table, here some general properties of the group 2 elements are examined. As stated previously, these are primarily aimed at secondary school students, hence the relative simplicity and generality of the information presented. more

Group 1 Elements

I wanted to display all the key points about each group of elements, in a way that was both clear and engaging for the pupils – as a consequence, the information presented is relatively basic, so that it’s accessible for as many of the year groups as possible. I also tried to include some informatio more

The Metal Reactivity Series

The metal reactivity series is a commonly taught concept in chemistry, placing the metals, as its name suggests, in order of reactivity from most reactive to least reactive. It’s also a useful tool in predicting the products of simple displacement reactions involving two different metals, as well as more

Metal

Metal . In chemistry, a metal (Greek : Metallon) is an element that readily loses electrons to form positive ion s (cations) and has metallic bond s between metal atoms. Metals form ionic bonds with non-metals. They are sometimes described ... more
