The most reactive group of metals on the periodic table are the alkali metals. These metals are so reactive that they are not found naturally by themselves; they are found in nature as parts of compounds. More »

The most reactive non-metal is fluorine, and it is also the most reactive element that scientists have discovered. Fluorine combines readily with almost any substance, including metals that are usually stable. More »

The most reactive metal in the periodic table is francium. Francium belongs to the alkali metals, a group on the periodic table whose members are all highly reactive. These metals are highly reactive because they all hav... More »

An element's metallic properties refer to its propensity to behave like the elements that are classified as metals in the periodic table. This depends on the set of chemical properties commonly associated with the metall... More »
