Thin films of einsteinium metal were prepared by reducing Es/sub 2/O/sub 3/ with lanthanum, distilling the einsteinium metal, and condensing it on carbon substrates supported by electron microscopy grids. The metal deposits were then analyzed by electron diffraction. The results show that vapor-deposited einsteinium metal is divalent and exhibits a fcc phase (a/sub 0/ = 5.75(1)A) very similar to that reported for the expanded form of californium metal. 

X-Ray Powder Diffraction of Einsteinium Compounds

X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) analysis has proven to be extremely valuable in the study of the transplutonium elements. The high specific activity and the thermal energy associated with the

Henry’s Law vaporization studies and thermodynamics of einsteinium‐253 metal dissolved in ytterbium

The cohesive energy of metallic einsteinium determines whether einsteinium is a trivalent or divalent metal. The enthalpy of sublimation, a measure of the cohesive energy, is calculated from the

Probing electronic structure in berkelium and californium via an electron microscopy nanosampling approach

Transmission electron microscopy can provide comprehensive, safe, and cost-effective characterization using only single nanogram amounts of highly-radioactive, solid compounds of actinides and their compounds is described.

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

Electrochemical Studies of Selected Lanthanide and Californium Cryptates.

This work reports on the stabilization of CfII by encapsulation in 2.2.2-cryptand and comparisons with the readily reducible lanthanides, Sm3+, Eu3+, and Yb3+.

Electron Diffraction of 3D Molecular Crystals

Electron crystallography has a storied history which rivals that of its more established X-ray-enabled counterpart. Recent advances in data collection and analysis have sparked a renaissance in the
