Calcium in Biological Systems - CaltechAUTHORS
11 a 3 / CALCIUM IN BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS At CN = 6, the ionic radii of Ca2+, Cd2+, and Mg 2+ are 1.00, 0.95, and 0.72 A, respectively, whereas at eN = 8 they are 1.12, 1.10, and 0.89 A, respectively.4 Ligand preferences of Ca2+ depend on the fact that it is a hard metal ion. Thus Ca2+ strongly prefers oxygen ligands over nitrogen or sulfur ligands;
Metals, Metalloids, and Non-metals | Shmoop
The truth is, it depends on the element with which they are reacting. Boron, for example, reacts like a metal when reacting with fluorine, but reacts like a non-metal when reacting with sodium. Boron, a metalloid, turns green when put in a flame. Metalloids play an important role in our everyday lives.
