Brief encounters with dubnium.


Now you see me, now you don’t, this might be a fitting exit line for a dubnium atom slipping through our hands as it decays by sending out an alpha particle. However, the chemist gets the last laugh, as it is this very vanishing act that makes the one-atom-at-a-time chemistry experiments on element 105, a heavier analogue of tantalum, feasible. As one of… (More)
