The term transition metal refers to any element in the d-block of the periodic table which are all metals. This includes the group 12 elements zinc, cadmium and mercury.
The many interesting properties of the transition elements as a group are the result of their partly filled" d subshells". So, the orbital occupancy in the transition ...
