TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Manganese isÂ Mn. Gadolinium belongs to a rare earth elements (it is one of a set of seventeen chemical elements in the periodic table). It readily forms hard, stable carbides in alloys, and for this reason most of world production of the element (about 80%) is used in steel alloys, including high-strength alloys and superalloys. These have similar chemical properties, but palladium has the lowest melting point and is the least dense of them. Osmium is a hard, brittle, bluish-white transition metal in the platinum group that is found as a trace element in alloys, mostly in platinum ores. Zirconium is mainly used as a refractory and opacifier, although small amounts are used as an alloying agent for its strong resistance to corrosion. Erbium is a silvery-white solid metal when artificially isolated, natural erbium is always found in chemical combination with other elements. Tincal is the most important source of boron from the Mojave. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Rhenium isÂ Re. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Berkelium isÂ Bk. Atomic Number â Does it conserve in a nuclear reaction? These condensers use tubes that are usually made of stainless steel, copper alloys, or titanium depending on several selection criteria (such as thermal conductivity or corrosion resistance). Francium is an alkali metal, that has one valence electron. (1969), Discoverer: Scientists at Dubna, Russia (1967)/Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory (1970), Discoverer: Armbruster, Paula and Muenzenberg, Dr. Gottfried, Element Category: unknown, probably a transition metal, Discoverer: David Anderson, Ruhani Rabin, Team Updraft, Element Category: unknown, probably a post-transition metal, Discoverer: Hisinger, Wilhelm and Berzelius, JÃ¶ns Jacob/Klaproth, Martin Heinrich. Einsteinium is the seventh transuranic element, and an actinide. Holmium is a relatively soft and malleable silvery-white metal. Uranium is weakly radioactive because all isotopes of uranium are unstable, with half-lives varying between 159,200 years and 4.5 billion years. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Tellurium isÂ Te. MendeleviumÂ is a chemical element withÂ atomic numberÂ 101Â which means there are 101 protons and 101 electrons in the atomic structure. Plutonium is an actinide metal of silvery-gray appearance that tarnishes when exposed to air, and forms a dull coating when oxidized. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Xenon isÂ Xe. Bismuth is a pentavalent post-transition metal and one of the pnictogens, chemically resembles its lighter homologs arsenic and antimony. FermiumÂ is a chemical element withÂ atomic numberÂ 100Â which means there are 100 protons and 100 electrons in the atomic structure. Praseodymium is a soft, silvery, malleable and ductile metal, valued for its magnetic, electrical, chemical, and optical properties. Indium is a post-transition metal that makes up 0.21 parts per million of the Earthâs crust. It is one of the least reactive chemical elements and is solid under standard conditions. Like all elements with atomic number over 100, lawrencium can only be produced in particle accelerators by bombarding lighter elements with charged particles. Krypton is a member of group 18 (noble gases) elements. Neptunium metal is silvery and tarnishes when exposed to air. All isotopes of radium are highly radioactive, with the most stable isotope being radium-226. SodiumÂ is a chemical element withÂ atomic numberÂ 11Â which means there are 11 protons and 11 electrons in the atomic structure. The element is not found free in nature, but occurs as orthoboric acid usually found in certain volcanic spring waters and as borates in boron and colemantie. Commercially, thallium is produced as a byproduct from refining of heavy metal sulfide ores. Boron, symbol B, has a Simple Trigonal structure and Black color. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Rubidium isÂ Rb. Nickel belongs to the transition metals and is hard and ductile. Elemental sulfur is a bright yellow crystalline solid at room temperature. AluminumÂ is a chemical element withÂ atomic numberÂ 13Â which means there are 13 protons and 13 electrons in the atomic structure. In nuclear industry, especially artificial xenon 135 has a tremendous impact on the operation of a nuclear reactor. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Lawrencium isÂ Lr. The free element, produced by reductive smelting, is a hard, lustrous, silver-gray metal. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Radium isÂ Ra. In some respects zinc is chemically similar to magnesium: both elements exhibit only one normal oxidation state (+2), and the Zn2+ and Mg2+ ions are of similar size. RadonÂ is a chemical element withÂ atomic numberÂ 86Â which means there are 86 protons and 86 electrons in the atomic structure. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Bismuth isÂ Bi. Lead is widely used as a gamma shield. Lutetium is the last element in the lanthanide series, and it is traditionally counted among the rare earths. Boron is a poor conductor of electricity at room temperature but a good conductor at high temperature. Other boron compounds show promise in treating arthritis. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Zirconium isÂ Zr. The number of electrons in each elementâs electron shells, particularly the outermost valence shell, is the primary factor in determining its chemical bonding behavior. Boron is a metalloid element. Promethium is one of only two such elements that are followed in the periodic table by elements with stable forms. Boron (B), chemical element, semimetal of main Group 13 (IIIa, or boron group) of the periodic table, essential to plant growth and of wide industrial application. TheÂ chemical symbolÂ for Technetium isÂ Tc. It's the big number five on the periodic table of elements. Chemically, sulfur reacts with all elements except for gold, platinum, iridium, tellurium, and the noble gases.
