I read that it is because it is easier to ionise the elements as the electrons involved are those of d orbitals which have same degeneracy. First of all, i found it very vague. Secondly, what about the poor screening effect of d and f orbitals which increases effective nuclear force on valence electrons? Would it seemingly not make difficult for the ion to bear more positive charges?
