 Synonyms & Historicals
Metals, Rare Earth .
Earth Metals, Rare .
Rare Earth Metals .
A group of elements that include SCANDIUM; YTTRIUM; and the LANTHANOID SERIES ELEMENTS. Historically, the rare earth metals got their name from the fact that they were never found in their pure elemental form, but as an oxide. In addition they were very difficult to purify. They are not truly rare and comprise about 25% of the metals in the earth's crust. .
Metals, Alkaline Earth .
Group 2 Elements .
Earth Metals, Alkaline .
Elements, Group 2 .
Alkaline Earth Metals .
Metals that constitute the group 2 (formerly group IIa) of the periodic table. .
Metals .
Electropositive chemical elements characterized by ductility, malleability, luster, and conductance of heat and electricity. They can replace the hydrogen of an acid and form bases with hydroxyl radicals. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed) .
