Titanium valence electrons

Postby DLee_1L » Sat Nov 02, 2019 11:19 am

By definition, is titanium's valence electron count 2 because there are only 2 electrons in the highest energy level (4s) or is it four because the 4s and 3d shells are on a similar energy level?

I don't think we count valence electrons for d-block elements but they can have multiple oxidation states.

Since it is a transition metal, the amount of valence electrons the element has can vary.
