Recognition status, as metalloids, of some elements in the p-block of the periodic table. Percentages are median appearance frequencies in the lists of metalloids.[n 1] The staircase-shaped line is a typical example of the arbitrary metal–nonmetal dividing line found on some periodic tables.

Colors used
  • {{element color|Metalloid citeclass 1 of 4}}  #baffba (93%)
  • {{element color|Metalloid citeclass 2 of 4}}  #badcff (44%)
  • {{element color|Metalloid citeclass 3 of 4}}  #ffbadc (24%)
