Metals, Metalloids and Nonmetals
This periodic table shows the elements and locations of the metals, metalloids and nonmetals. It also lists the common properties of metals, metalloids and nonmetals. You can print out the table the same as any of the periodic tables on the site.

List of Metals
This is a list of the elements considered to be the metal elements along with a periodic table highlighting these elements and their common properties.

List of Metalloids
This is a list of the elements considered to be the metalloid or semimetal elements. It also contains a periodic table highlighting the metalloids and their common properties.

List of Nonmetals
This is a list of all the nonmetal elements, their location on the periodic table and the properties of a nonmetal.
