Chemistry has arrived on the shore of the Island of Stability with the first chemical investigation of the superheavy elements Cn, 113, and 114. The results of three experimental series leading to first measured thermodynamic data and qualitatively evaluated chemical properties for these elements are described. An interesting volatile compound class has been observed in the on-line experiments for the elements Bi and Po. Hence, an exciting chemical study of their heavier transactinide… 
Superheavy Element Chemistry
In this chapter dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Professor Mikhail Grigorievich Itkis the achievements and prospective in the field of the chemistry of superheavy elements are covered with
Gold-superheavy-element interaction in diatomics and cluster adducts: A combined four-component Dirac-Kohn-Sham/charge-displacement study.
An all-electron four-component Dirac-Kohn-Sham comparative study of the interaction of gold with Cn, Fl, and Uuo versus their lighter homologues of the 6th period plus the noble gas Xe reveals similarities in the behaviour of Cn and Xe, and in that of Uuo and the more reactive species Hg and Pb.
The influence of physical parameters on the in-situ metal carbonyl complex formation studied with the Fast On-line Reaction Apparatus (FORA)
Abstract The Fast On-line Reaction Apparatus (FORA) was used to investigate the influence of various reaction parameters onto the formation and transport of metal carbonyl complexes (MCCs) under
Projection population analysis for molecules with heavy and superheavy atoms
A new iterative version of population projection analysis is formulated and applied to determine relativistic effective atomic configurations of superheavy elements Cn and Fl and their lighter
The influence of chemical parameters on the in-situ metal carbonyl complex formation studied with the fast on-line reaction apparatus (FORA)
Abstract A new setup named Fast On-line Reaction Apparatus (FORA) is presented which allows for the efficient investigation and optimization of metal carbonyl complex (MCC) formation reactions under
Calculation of multidimensional potential energy surfaces for even-even transuranium nuclei:systematic investigation of the triaxiality effect on the fission barrier
Static fission barriers for 95 even-even transuranium nuclei with charge number $Z=94-118$ have been systematically investigated by means of pairing self-consistent Woods-Saxon-Strutinsky
Extraction of thallium and indium isotopes as the homologues of nihonium into the ionic liquids
Extraction of thallium and indium, as the homologues of nihonium, from HCl solutions into hydrophobic ionic liquids was studied. In the presence of NaClO2 as the oxidizing agent, thallium is

Chemistry of superheavy elements.
These results place the architecture of the far-end of the Periodic Table on the test bench and probe the increasingly strong relativistic effects that influence the chemical properties there.
Chemical investigation of hassium (element 108)
Evidence that the chemical properties of hassium and its lighter homologue osmium are similar is provided, thus confirming that hassio exhibits properties as expected from its position in group 8 of the periodic table.
Indication for a volatile element 114
Abstract Recently, the chemical investigation of element 112 revealed a highly volatile, noble metallic behaviour, as expected for the last group 12 member of the periodic table. The observed
20 Chemistry of Transactinides
In this chapter, the chemical properties of the man-made transactinide elements rutherfordium, Rf (element 104), dubnium, Db (element 105), seaborgium, Sg (element 106), bohrium, Bh (element 107),
Chemical characterization of element 112
A more reliable chemical characterization of element 112, involving the production of two atoms of 283112 through the alpha decay of the short-lived 287114 and the adsorption of the two atoms on a gold surface, finds that element 112 is very volatile and, unlike radon, reveals a metallic interaction with the gold surface.
Thermochromatographic studies of mercury and radon on transition metal surfaces
Abstract In preparation for the experimental investigation of chemical properties of element 112 model studies were conducted based on the assumed similarity of element 112 to either the noble gas Rn
Relativistic pseudopotential model for superheavy elements: applications to chemistry of eka-Hg and eka-Pb
Relativistic pseudopotential approach to the electronic structure simulation of superheavy elements (SHE) compounds is presented. Advanced formulations of this approach leaving both valence and
Synthesis of the heaviest elements in 48Ca-induced reactions
Abstract The observation of atomic numbers Z that are 40% larger than that of Bi, the heaviest stable element, is an impressive extension of nuclear survival. Although the super heavy nuclei (SHN)
