What are the f-block elements in period 6 known as?

1 Answer

These are known as Innertransition metals
Starting from 57 atomic number im Modern Periodic table
These inner transition metals consist of lanthanoids and actinoids
These are mostly radioactive

Not much is discovered about these metals
These have f orbitals
and generally show +2 and +3 oxidation states
i,e losses 2 or three electrons fro their valence orbitals to acquire stable configuration
These generally belong to d block elements
