 Metal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The metals are one of the three groups of elements as distinguished by their ionization and bonding properties, along with the metalloids and nonmetals.
The oxides of metals are basic (as opposed to those of nonmetals, which are acidic), although this may be considered a rule of thumb, rather than an absolute condition.
The electrical and thermal conductivity of metals originate from the fact, that in the metallic bond the outer electrons of the metal atoms form a gas of nearly free electrons, moving as an electron gas in a background of positive charge formed by the ion cores.
