Evaluation of the Chemical Properties of the Transactinide
Elements (IUPAC Technical Report)
J. V. Kratz
and Applied Chemistry,
Vol. 75, No. 1, pp. 103108 (2003)
this paper, the chemical properties of the transactinide elements
rutherfordium, Rf (element 104); dubnium, Db (element 105);
and seaborgium, Sg (element 106) are critically reviewed.
The experimental methods for performing rapid chemical separations
on a time scale of seconds are reviewed, and comments are
given on the special situation with the transactinides for
which the chemistry has to be studied with single atoms. There
follows a systematic description of theoretical predictions
and experimental results on the chemistry of Rf, Db, and Sgtheir
mutual comparison and evaluation. The literature cited has
the cutoff date of March 1999. The more recent chemical identification
of bohrium, Bh (element 107), and of hassium, Hs (element
108), should be evaluated in a future part II of this report.
