Relatively speaking: Bond energies, structural properties, and reactivity patterns of 5d transition metals are heavily affected by relativistic effects. Typical examples concern the unique ability of 5d metal cations in the electronic ground state to spontaneously dehydrogenate methane at room temperature (see scheme), and the dramatic effect of ligands on the ionization energy of gold.
