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 stabilization. All 15 presently ‘known’ SHEs (11 are officially ‘discovered’ and named) up to element 118 are short-lived and are manmade atom-at-a-time in heavy ion induced nuclear reactions. They are identical to the transactinide elements located in the seventh period of the periodic table beginning with… Expand

Chemical investigation of hassium (element 108)
TLDR
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. Expand

Chemical characterization of bohrium (element 107)
TLDR
The chemical separation and characterization of six atoms of element 107 (bohrium, Bh), in the form of its oxychloride, is reported, finding that this compound is less volatile than the oxychlorides of the lighter elements of group VII, thus confirming relativistic calculations that predict the behaviour of bohrium to coincide with that expected on the basis of its position in the periodic table.

Chemical characterization of element 112
TLDR
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.

The identification of element 108
TLDR
The aim was to produce element 108 by complete fusion of S'Fe with 2~ followed by evapora- tion of one neutron which leads to the odd mass isotope '6sI08', and to allow an unambiguous identi- fication of the new element in case of its a-decay, the unknown daughter isotope 2~I06 was investigated.
