Why are some metals so reactive to water?



  1. 0 Votes

    When certain metals, such as alkali metals, come into contact with water, a chemical reaction occurs in which elements of the metal bond to the molecules of the water and typically release a hydrogen gas. The heat of the reaction is usually enough to ignite the gases and cause an explosion. The gas released by these reactions can also be highly toxic. The metals are so reactive because they clash or become volatile when in contact with the molecules in water.
