chemistry inorganic reactions/colours/observations

hello, anybody got a list of all the reactions/colours/observations for the transition metals? this is potentially the hardest bit of chemistry to get around for me, so any tips will be appreciated..
thanks
As a former transition metal myself, back in the day I really preferred being red as a hexa aqua ion.

if you use Chemrevise revision guides for transition metal and their practical guide you will be fine

also, these are the colours that you have to know

Which exam board are you with?

I did Edexcel, which doesn’t have a dedicated resource on what complexes you need to know, but I have all the ones you need to know still memorised.

edexcel ion colours

If you do OCR, refer to this instead: https://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/598991-colours-of-inorganic-ions-and-complexes-poster-.pdf

I do Oxford aqa, youve probably never heard of it but its literally the same as AQA just international, with very few changes.weird exam board

I have heard of it - when I ran out of past papers for my revision a few years back, I tried (and failed lol) to find the Oxford AQA past papers to revise with.

Honestly, the resource linked by Noname60 is your best bet as it should cover everything you will do for the colours and reactions of transition metals.
