More information about Alkali Metals

The alkali metals are very reactive metals that do not occur often in nature. These metals have only one electron in their outer shell. Since they are ready to lose that one electron in ionic bonding with other elements. As with all metals, the alkali metals are malleable, ductile, and are good conductors of heat and electricity. The alkali metals are softer than most other metals. Cesium and francium are the most reactive elements in this group. Alkali metals can explode if they are exposed to water
