Class 12 Chemistry D and F Block Elements Alloy Formation

Alloy Formation

  • Alloys are homogeneous mixtures of more than one metal that can displace another metal from the crystal lattice due to their comparable sizes. This leads to the formation of alloys.
  • The alloys so formed are hard with high melting points. For example, chromium, vanadium, tungsten, manganese, molybdenum are the ferrous alloys.
  • Some other examples are brass (alloy of copper + zinc), stainless steel, bronze (alloy of copper + tin), etc.
