WE know that free electrons move as an electric current ..... We also know that the atom becomes ionised when the electron moves.................. then >> WHY not the chemical properties of a conductor change ?? For Example : Aluminium has 3 free electrons in its outermost electron ....... after becoming ionised ,,, let us say it has 3+ charge on it ........ then why it will not convert to nearest nobel gas????

The chemical properties of the conducting material would never change because suppose on applying a potential difference, if 3 electrons are leaving the conductors then simultaneously 3 electrons would also enter the conductor!! hence the total no. of electrons would always remain the same.
