  1.  In the highest oxidation states of the first five transition elements (Sc to Mn), all the 4s and  3d electrons are used for bonding. 

  2. Once the d5 configuration is exceeded, the tendency to involve all the 3d electrons in bonding decreases.

  3. In addition to the normal oxidation states, the zero oxidation state is also shown by these elements  in complexes.

  4. In the highest oxidation states, the transition metal show basic character and form cationic complexes.
