Recent Developments in the Field of the TransplutoniumElements

Description

The author tells about some of the most interesting aspects of recent research on the synthetic transplutonium elements. The amount of recent information on these elements is obviously too much to cover completely in the time that has been placed at my disposal. Therefore, in planning my talk, I have attempted to choose those topics which have the broadest implications for the whole transuranium field of research. Although much important and interesting research is, of course, being done in many laboratories, I have chosen examples mainly from the work in our own laboratory, the Radiation Laboratory at the University of ... continued below

Description

The author tells about some of the most interesting aspects of recent research on the synthetic transplutonium elements. The amount of recent information on these elements is obviously too much to cover completely in the time that has been placed at my disposal. Therefore, in planning my talk, I have attempted to choose those topics which have the broadest implications for the whole transuranium field of research. Although much important and interesting research is, of course, being done in many laboratories, I have chosen examples mainly from the work in our own laboratory, the Radiation Laboratory at the University of California in Berkeley. I shall cover this information about the known transplutonium elements, listed in Slide No. 1, by discussing them in order of increasing atomic number, and I shall conclude with some thoughts concerning the prospects for elements with higher atomic numbers than any that have been produced and identified up to the present time. For purposes of orientation, Slide No. 2 shows the position in the periodic table of the presently known and the future transuranium elements. The transplutonium elements through element 103, together with the five preceding elements, are members of the 'heavy rare earth', or actinide transition series, which is analogous to the lighter rare easth, or lanthanide, transition series. The undiscovered 'trans-103' elements will fit into the periodic table as shown. I shall, of course, refer in my talk to the important unifying principle embodied in the periodic table.
