Determining amphoteric compounds

Postby Shanzey » Sun Dec 01, 2019 10:06 pm

How are you able to determine if something can be an amphoteric compound without knowing the chemical reaction equation? Does it have to do with the number of hydrogen atoms attached to the molecule?

There's a band of elements whose oxides are amphoteric between the metals and the nonmetals: Be, Al, Ge, Sn, Pb, Sb
