    Delocalised electrons keep on moving or are unstable as in metals while localised are the opposite-Metals conduct electricity due to delocalised electrons.

    Delocalised electrons exist in orbitals that are spread out over three or more atoms. Localised electrons are fixed to a specific atom.
