Electronic Configurations, Atomic and Ionic Sizes, Oxidation States, General Characteristics, Chemical Reactivity and Lanthanoid Contraction and Its Consequences
Compare the chemistry of actinoids with that of the lanthanoids with special reference to electronic configuration
What are inner transition elements? Decide which of the following atomic numbers are the atomic numbers of the inner transition elements: 29, 59, 74, 95, 102, 104.
Name the members of the lanthanoid series which exhibit +4 oxidation state and those which exhibit +2 oxidation state. Try to correlate this type of behavior with the electronic configurations of these elements.
Compare the chemistry of actinoids with that of the lanthanoids with special reference to: oxidation state
Comment on the statement that elements of the first transition series possess many properties different from those of heavier transition elements.
Compare the chemistry of actinoids with that of the lanthanoids with special reference to chemical reactivity.
The chemistry of the actinoid elements is not so smooth as that of the Lanthanoids. Justify this statement by giving some examples from the oxidation state of these elements
