D and F-Block Elements
IIT JEE AIEEE D and F Block (Transition Elements) Elements Study Material - Course Material
The elements that lie in between S-block and P-block are the d-block elements. These elements are called transition elements as they show transitional properties between s and p-block elements. These elements contain partially filled d-orbitals and hence they are called as d-block elements.
The f-block of the periodic table of the elements consists of those elements whose atoms or ions have valence electrons in f-orbitals. Actual electronic configurations may be slightly different from what is predicted by the aufbau principle. The elements are also known as inner transition elements.
This section includes the important topics like screening effect, periodic table, hydration energy, magnetic and periodic properties etc.
