CHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF ALKALI METALS

Alkali metals exhibit very high chemical reactivity because— i) Low IE1, so they form M+ easily. ii) Low heat of atomisation so their vapour are formed easily. iii) High heat of hydration, so a lot of energy is available to break existing bonds. If other factors are not present then Ionisation enthalpy may be taken […]
