  • 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, deviations in the periodicity of chemical properties for the heaviest elements are predicted as a consequence of increasingly strong relativistic effects on the electronic shell structure. The transactinide elements have now been extended up to element 112 (ref. 8), but the chemical properties have been… CONTINUE READING
