Caption

Palladium (Pd). Diagram of the nuclear composition and electron configuration of an atom of palladium-106 (atomic number: 46), the most common isotope of this element. The nucleus consists of 46 protons (red) and 60 neutrons (blue). Palladium is a transition metal in group 10, period 5, and the d-block of the periodic table. It has a melting point of 1555 degrees Celsius. The transition metal trends are due to electrons filling an inner d-subshell (here, within the 4th ring), shielding the outer electrons from the increasing nuclear charge.
