Which block of the periodic table contains the metal ions that can absorb energy to promote electrons to the outer energy levels of the metal?
Other than emitting energy quanta that correspond to certain wavelengths of light, what other property can be a result of electrons returning to their original energy levels in D block metal ions?
What are conjugated bonds?
What are chromophores?
Why do conjugated bonds result in chromophore properties?
