Latest Transuranium element Stories
A superheavy element originally discovered in 2010 has been successfully reproduced by an international team of chemists and physicists, bringing it one step closer to being named.
An international group of researchers, led by the University of Granada, has measured the effects of layers on super-heavy elements, providing useful data on the nuclear structure of these as yet undiscovered elements in nature.
On Thursday, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) proposed new names for elements 114 and 116.
The Periodic Table has gotten a little bit bigger, as the General Assembly of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) voted to approve three new elements on Friday.
At GSI Helmholtzzentrum fÃ¼r Schwerionenforschung, an international team of scientists succeeded in the observation of the chemical element 114, one of the heaviest elements created until now.
A collaboration of Russian and US physicists has finally created element 117 - a superheavy element made of atoms containing 117 protons that is roughly 40% heavier than lead.
U.S. scientists say they have confirmed the production of the superheavy element 114, 10 years after a Russian group first claimed to have made it. The researchers at the U.S.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have been able to confirm the production of the superheavy element 114, ten years after a group in Russia, at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, first claimed to have made it.
A team of German scientists has been credited with the discovery of the new â€œsuper-heavyâ€ element 112 more than ten years after intensive laboratory work first yielded a single atom of the novel form of matter.
Californium is a metallic chemical element. It has the symbol Cf and the atomic number 98. This is a radioactive transuranic (atomic number greater than 92) element. Californium is used for starting nuclear reactors, optimizing coal power plants, the treatment of cancer, and oil drilling. It was first produced by bombarding curium with helium ions. It was first synthesized in 1950 at UC Berkeley. Californium was the 6th element found with an atomic number higher than 92. It was named after...
