Talk:Periodic table (metals and nonmetals)
|WikiProject Elements||(Rated List-class, Mid-importance)|
How are Metals Different from Non-Metals? Metals are more malleable and ductile where nonmetals are brittle. Metals are also conductive and nonmetals insulators.
If only an atom or two at a time of a synthetic element has been made, can you really conclusively say that you know it to be a solid at RT?
The link to Meitnerium on the table appears to be broken, but I don't understand the code well enough to fix it. It currently points to Periodic table (metals and non-metals)#FCFCFC. RJC Talk Contribs 19:02, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
- Thanks for pointing this out. I corrected the link. (Seems I was also the one who broke it in the first place.) --Roentgenium111 (talk) 19:35, 19 July 2008 (UTC)
- Do you have a reliable source for it being a metalloid? --Roentgenium111 (talk) 21:00, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
According to diagonal trend from boron, At should be a metalloid. Some calculations predict that it is even rather metallic:
