Boron Group- Group 13-Periodic Table

Boron Group--The boron group are the elements found in group 13 of the periodic table. They include boron (B), aluminum (Al), gallium (Ga), indium (In), thallium (Tl), and niobium
Take a look at the boron group.

The elements of the Boron group are post-transition metals except for boron which is a metalloid and Niobium which is a synthetic chemical element and is extremely radioactive.

All of the elements of the boron group have three valence electrons.

The elements in the boron group, except for boron are soft. They are relatively reactive at moderate temperatures, except boron is reactive at very high temperatures. The metals in the group are good conductors of heat and electricity except for boron. As you move down the boron group the boiling point gets lower and the density increases. Aluminium is a popular boron group element and is the third most abundant element in the crust.


Gallium is found in nature and in the Earth's crust, Indium is fairly abundant in the earth's crust, and thallium is found in small amounts throughout the planet but is toxic.
Boron is not found naturally on earth, nor is Niobium.
