Class 12 Chemistry D and F Block Elements Formation of Interstitial Compounds

Formation of Interstitial Compounds

  • Transition elements in combination with small atoms like H, B, C, N etc. leads to the formation of interstitial compounds that are non-stoichiometric in composition.

E.g.: TiH1.3, VH0.54

  • The interstitial compounds so formed are chemically inert having higher melting points as compared to pure metals. These componds are hard and tough and keeps metallic conductivity.
