What are the Chemical
Properties of Metalloids? They are the characteristics that
determine how they will react with other substances or change from
one substance to another. The better we know the nature of the substance the
better we are able to understand it. Chemical properties are only observable during a
chemical reaction. Reactions to substances may be brought
about by changes brought about by burning, rusting, heating, exploding, tarnishing
etc. The Chemical
Properties of Metalloids are as follows:
Alloys: Form alloys with metals*Allotropic: Several metallic and
non-metallic allotropic forms
Melting: Some metalloids
contract on meltingCompounds: Reacts with the halogens to
*Allotropic - Allotropes are
forms of an element with different physical and chemical properties
occurring in two or more crystalline forms in the same physical state.
