Dear tarun,

Approximately two-thirds of the elements in the periodic table can be categorized as metals. Besides luster, malleability, and conductivity, one of the fundamental characteristics of metals is their low ionization potential. As a result, the ionic forms of these elements predominate in the biosphere. Considering the diverse properties of these ions, it is not surprising that through the process of evolution, metal ions have been co-opted into numerous roles in biology. Metal ions are required for so many biochemical reactions that it is likely that they also had an important role in the RNA world.

We are all IITians and here to help you in your IIT JEE preparation.

All the best.
