A report on Metal and Chemical element
A metal may be a chemical element such as iron; an alloy such as stainless steel; or a molecular compound such as polymeric sulfur nitride.- Metal
A first distinction is between metals, which readily conduct electricity, nonmetals, which do not, and a small group, (the metalloids), having intermediate properties and often behaving as semiconductors.- Chemical element

Heavy metals5 links
Heavy metals are generally defined as metals with relatively high densities, atomic weights, or atomic numbers.
The definitions surveyed in this article encompass up to 96 out of the 118 known chemical elements; only mercury, lead and bismuth meet all of them.
Silver is a chemical element with the symbol Ag (from the Latin argentum, derived from the Proto-Indo-European h₂erǵ: "shiny" or "white") and atomic number 47.
A soft, white, lustrous transition metal, it exhibits the highest electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and reflectivity of any metal.
Uranium is a chemical element with the symbol U and atomic number 92.
It is a silvery-grey metal in the actinide series of the periodic table.
Arsenic is a chemical element with the symbol As and atomic number 33.
Arsenic occurs in many minerals, usually in combination with sulfur and metals, but also as a pure elemental crystal.
Carbon (from carbo "coal") is a chemical element with the symbol C and atomic number 6.
This results in a lower bulk electrical conductivity for carbon than for most metals.
Gold is a chemical element with the symbol Au (from aurum) and atomic number 79, making it one of the higher atomic number elements that occur naturally.
It is a bright, slightly orange-yellow, dense, soft, malleable, and ductile metal in a pure form.
Plutonium is a radioactive chemical element with the symbol Pu and atomic number 94.
It is an actinide metal of silvery-gray appearance that tarnishes when exposed to air, and forms a dull coating when oxidized.
Sodium is a chemical element with the symbol Na (from Latin natrium) and atomic number 11.
It is a soft, silvery-white, highly reactive metal.
Nickel is a chemical element with symbol Ni and atomic number 28.
It is a silvery-white lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge.
Alkaline earth metal3 links
The alkaline earth metals are six chemical elements in group 2 of the periodic table.
The elements have very similar properties: they are all shiny, silvery-white, somewhat reactive metals at standard temperature and pressure.
