Selected systematic properties and some recent investigations of actinide metals and alloys

The actinide elements form a unique and scientifically interesting series. They display a wide range of physical properties from those characteristic of d-electron transition metals to those of the


Mechanical and thermophysical properties of actinide monocarbides

This paper describes the mechanical and thermophysical properties of actinide monocarbides AnCs (An=Np and Cm) as a function of temperature and crystallographic direction. The temperature-dependent

Synthetic diversity in the preparation of metallic uranium

Uranium metal is associated with several aspects of nuclear technology; it is used as fuel for research and power reactors, targets for medical isotope productions, explosive for nuclear weapons and

The enthalpy of sublimation and thermodynamic functions of fermium

The enthalpy of sublimation of fermium (Fm), element 100, has now been determined directly by measuring the partial pressure of Fm over alloys, for the temperature range of 642 to 905 K. The partial



Characterization of some Metallic State Properties of Mendelevium and other Actinoids by Thermochromatography

The adsorption of the heavy actinoids Cf, Es, Fra, and Md on polycrystalline titanium and molybdenum has been studied by thermochromatography in comparison to several well known metallic Clements in

Delocalisation of 5f electrons in berkelium-californium alloys under pressure

The high-pressure structural behaviour of two berkelium-californium alloys was studied up to about 47 GPa. The alloys had been formed through the ingrowth of 249Cf into 249Bk by beta - decay. The
