    Title: Group Characteristics in Periodic Table

    Table of Contents:
    1. Hydrogen
    2. Alkali Metals and Earth Alkali Metals
    3. 3A Group Elements
    4. 4A Group Elements
    5. 5A Group Elements
    6. 6A Group Elements

    8. Transition Metals

    Body:
    1. Hydrogen
    Hydrogen is the lightest element and the most abundant element in the universe. It has three isotopes: Protium, H; Deuterium, D; and Tritium, T. Deuterium and Tritium are used as isotopic labels in spectroscopy. Usually hydrogen is prepared by electrical or chemical reduction of a compound where hydrogen is in +1 oxidation state. For example, alkali metals react with water at ordinary temperature yielding hydrogen [1]:
    2 Li + 2 H2O = H2 + 2 LiOH
    Industrially hydrogen is produced by the steam reforming of natural gas and by the electrolysis of water. Hydrogen is a colorless odorless gas, which reacts with most of the elements. It is a better conductor of heat than other gases. Hydrogen does not support respiration, but it is not poisonous either.

    2. Alkali Metals and Earth Alkali Metals
    The alkali metals in Group 1 of the periodic table consists ...
