Redirected from Reactivity series

The reactivity series is a list of metals (and carbon and hydrogen). It tells you how reactive they are, and how they are extracted from their ores.

  • Potassium
  • Sodium
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Aluminium
  • Carbon
  • Hydrogen
  • Copper
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Platinum

Method of ExtractionEdit

The top 5 metals are extracted by electrolysis, the next three after carbon by reduction of their oxides by carbon (See Blast furnace), and the four below hydrogen by looking for them - as they occur naturally.
