Tinis the main group metal in group 14 of the Periodic Table. Tin is a chemical element with an atomic number of 50. Tin is the 49th most abundant element and has, with 10 isotopes, the largest number of stable isotopes in the periodic table. In modern times tin is used in many alloys, most notably tin soft solder which are typically 60% or more tin. Tin is part of the Post- Transition metals. After 600 BC pure metallic tin was produced. Because of its low toxicity, tin-plated metal is commonly used for food packaging as tin cans, which are made mostly of steel.
