1. Properties & Uses of Compounds of Group 1 Elements
Group 1 elements are very reactive. In this lesson we will learn what types of compounds the group forms, how these compounds are formed, and what these compounds are used for.
2. Properties & Uses of Compounds of Group 2 Elements
Group 2 elements make up many of the materials you depend upon on a daily basis. This lesson will go over properties of group 2 elements and then will delve into the processing and uses of some compounds containing this group.
3. Properties & Uses of Compounds of Group 3 Elements
This lesson will focus primarily on chemical compounds containing group 3 elements from the periodic table, specifically those containing boron and aluminum. We will get a brief survey of the properties and uses of the given compounds.
4. Properties & Uses of Compounds of Group 4 Elements
In this lesson, you will learn about the preparation, properties, and uses for compounds made using group 4 elements on the periodic table. Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, silicon dioxide, silicon carbide, and silicones will be explored.
5. Properties & Uses of Compounds of Group 5 Elements
In this lesson, you will learn about the preparation, properties, and uses of compounds found in group 5 on the periodic table. The compounds include oxides of nitrogen, phosphorus trichloride, phosphorus pentachloride, and oxoacids of phosphorus.
