The chemical elements up toZ = 172 are calculated with a relativistic Hartree-Fock-Slater program taking into account the effect of the extended nucleus. Predictions of the binding energies, the X-ray spectra and the number of electrons inside the nuclei are given for the inner electron shells. The predicted chemical behaviour will be discussed for all elements betweenZ = 104-120 and compared with previous known extrapolations. For the elementsZ = 121–172 predictions of their chemistry and a… 
The highest limiting Z in the extended periodic table
The problem of finding the highest limiting Z in the extended periodic table is discussed. The upper limit suggested by the atomic many body theory at Z=172 may be reached much earlier due to
Electronic Structure at the Edge of the Periodic Table
Theoretical investigation of atomic and chemical properties of the elements at the low edge of the periodic table, called transactinide or superheavy elements (SHEs), sheds light on the effects of
SCF Dirac-Hartree-Fock calculations in the periodic system
Using the Dirac-Hartree-Fock (DHF) program which includes the exchange terms for electrostatic interactions, the Dirac equation was solved numerically by UNIVAC computer for all elements with
Ab initio predictions of atomic properties of element 120 and its lighter group-2 homologues
The ionization potentials, excitation energies, and electron affinity of superheavy element 120 and the polarizabilities of its neutral and ionized states are calculated. Relativity is treated within
Ab initio studies of atomic properties and experimental behavior of element 119 and its lighter homologs.
TLDR
Very good agreement with available experimental values is obtained for Cs, lending credence to the predictions for Fr and element 119, and the adsorption enthalpy of element 119 on Teflon, which is important for possible future experimental studies of this element.

Extended Average Level (EAL) Dirac-Fock calculations on atoms and ions agree with earlier work in that a rough shell-filling order for the elements 119-172 is 8s < 5g≤ 8p(1/2) < 6f < 7d < 9s <
The periodic table and the physics that drives it
Mendeleev’s introduction of the periodic table of elements is one of the most important milestones in the history of chemistry, as it brought order into the known chemical and physical behaviour of
de Chemistry of the superheavy elements
The quest for superheavy elements (SHEs) is driven by the desire to find and explore one of the extreme limits of existence of matter. These elements exist solely due to their nuclear shell

TLDR
A test bench is established to challenge the validity and predictive power of modern fully relativistic quantum chemical models and to probe ‘relativistically’ influenced chemical properties and the architecture of the periodic table at its farthest reach.
