The first member of each group of representative elements (i.e., s and p-block elements) shows anomalous behaviour. Illustrate with two examples.

Answers (1)

Anomalous Properties of Second Period Elements: The anomalous behaviour is because of their small size, large charge/radius ratio, high electronegativity, and non-availability of d-orbitals in their valence shell.

example:

1.Compounds of lithium have significant covalent character. whereas compounds of other alkali metals are predominantly ionic.

2. In p-block elements, first member of each groups has four orbitals, one 2s-orbital and three 2p-orbitals it their valence shel.. So, these elements show a maximum covalency of four while othe member of the same group or different groups show a maximum covalency beyond four due to availability of vacant-d-orbitals.
