It has been shown that the relativistic effect on the electrons reveal in the heavy element region.1–3 What kind of changes will appear in the heavy elements because of the relativistic effects? Can we observe the changes? We observed that the boiling points of astatine and radon are lower than that extrapolated values from lighter elements in the same groups.4,5 We examined the systematic behavior of the elements on the boiling point and have found a new method for the estimation of the… Expand
