Chemical investigation of hassium (element 108)
The periodic table provides a classification of the chemical properties of the elements. But for the heaviest elements, the transactinides, this role of the periodic table reaches its limits becauseExpand

Chemical properties of element 106 (seaborgium)
The synthesis, via nuclear fusion reactions, of elements heavier than the actinides, allows one to probe the limits of the periodic table as a means of classifying the elements. In particular,Expand

The hydration enthalpies of Md3+ and Lr3+
Lawrencium (3-min 260Lr) and lighter actinides were produced in the bombardment of a 249Bk target with 18O ions and loaded onto a cation exchange column in 0.05 M α-hydroxyisobutyrate solution atExpand

Chemical characterization of bohrium (element 107)
The arrangement of the chemical elements in the periodic table highlights resemblances in chemical properties, which reflect the elements’ electronic structure. For the heaviest elements, however,Expand

Isotope distributions in the reaction of /sup 238/U with /sup 238/U
Radiochemically determined cross sections sigma (Z, A) were used to construct charge and mass distributions for the reaction of 1785-MeV /sup 238/U ions with thick /sup 238/U targets. Fission of theExpand

On the decay properties of 269Hs and indications for the new nuclide 270Hs
Abstract.In bombardments of 248Cm with 143.7-146.8 MeV 26Mg ions the nuclides 269Hs and presumably 270Hs were produced. After chemical isolation, Hs atoms were identified by observing geneticallyExpand

Production and decay of element 114: high cross sections and the new nucleus 277Hs.
The fusion-evaporation reaction 244Pu(48Ca,3-4n){288,289}114 was studied at the new gas-filled recoil separator TASCA. Thirteen correlated decay chains were observed and assigned to the productionExpand

Fluoride complexation of element 104, rutherfordium.
Fluoride complexation of element 104, rutherfordium (Rf), produced in the 248Cm(18O,5n)261Rf reaction has been studied by anion-exchange chromatography on an atom-at-a-time scale. The anion-exchangeExpand

Decay properties of {sup 265}Sg(Z=106) and {sup 266}Sg(Z=106)
The presently known most neutron-rich isotopes of element 106 (seaborgium, Sg), {sup 265}Sg and {sup 266}Sg, were produced in the fusion reaction {sup 22}Ne+{sup 248}Cm at beam energies of 121 andExpand

Observation of the 3n evaporation channel in the complete hot-fusion reaction 26Mg + 248Cm leading to the new superheavy nuclide 271Hs.
The analysis of a large body of heavy ion fusion reaction data with medium-heavy projectiles (6 < or = Z < or = 18) and actinide targets suggests a disappearance of the 3n exit channel withExpand
