Default valence of metal atoms

    Metal atoms are exported with their valence electrons into MDL mol format.

    Consequently, 1 or 2 implicit hydrogens are added to the alkali metals and alkaline earth metals upon export.

    By default Tin(Sn) is exported with 2 valence electrons and Thallium (Tl) with one.

    {info} You can set a non-default valence using the Atom menu or the Atom pop-up menu.
