While I wasn't shocked not to see any einsteinium or seaborgium used in vehicles, I was surprised to learn that bismuth and phosphorus are both commonly used in the painting process. Many of these materials have only relatively recently becoming somewhat common in production vehicles, such asÃâÃÂ ...

How've you been? It's been quite some time since we last spoke. I believe it may have been in 1970, when over here in the East Bay we confirmed the discovery of Dubnium. But that's in the past. We want to talk about the now. Here at UC Berkelium, we heard you were feeling a bit down. It's okay, though.

Carcinogenic, radioactive elements such as uranium and plutonium are too impractical, as are synthetic elements that exist only momentarily in lab experiments—seaborgium and einsteinium, for example. That leaves us with the 49 transition and post-transition metals: titanium, nickel, tin, lead, aluminumÃâÃÂ ...

“Car Bros is the only brand of prenatal vitamins loaded with the nutrients that a man's body needs, like boron and seaborgium.” Somehow, the whole thing only goes downhill from there, our host grinding gear changes and burning the clutch with his sub-par manual driving skills, getting in a shouting matchÃâÃÂ ...

Seaborg helped lead the Manhattan Project and co-discovered the element plutonium-238 and -239 and nine other transuranium elements — including seaborgium — according to a 1999 campus press release. Seaborg subsequently won the 1951 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, along with UC BerkeleyÃâÃÂ ...

The first time was actually seaborgium, which was named after Glenn Seaborg, a Nobel laureate in chemistry who contributed to the discovery of so many elements that he actually had to figure out a new way to draw the periodic table: the lanthanides and actinides, those two free-floating rows at the bottomÃâÃÂ ...

Both elements take Russian names: moscovium is for Moscow, while oganesson is named for living physicist Yuri Oganessian, leader of the Russian team and contributor to lots of elements' discoveries, including flerovium, bohrium, seaborgium, and dubnium. Tennessine is named for Tennessee, sinceÃâÃÂ ...

Over the course of 30 years, his inventions contributed to the discovery of americium, curium, berkelium, californium, einsteinium, fermium, mendelevium, nobelium, lawrencium, rutherfordium, dubnium and seaborgium. Seaborgium was named after his colleague Glenn Seaborg, a nuclear scientist.

29, 2014) – An international team of researchers have created a chemical bond between a superheavy element (seaborgium, Sg) and a carbon atom for the first time. This milestone achievement paves the way for the study of the chemical behavior other superheavy elements at the end of the periodic table,ÃâÃÂ ...

Sometimes, getting exactly the result you predict is more exciting than it sounds. Last week, Science published a paper about creating chemical compounds with element 106, Seaborgium. A quick glance at the abstract showed that this chemical behaved similarly to the one made of Sg's lighter cousin,ÃâÃÂ ...

Discovery: Seaborgium was first reported in June 1964 by a team of scientists in Dubna, Russia. They bombarded lead isotopes — 206Pb, 207Pb and 208Pb — with ions of chromium-54 (54Cr) through a cyclotron, producing ions of 259Sg. The results were understood through microscopically examiningÃâÃÂ ...

This week, we meet the element seaborgium, which has the atomic symbol, Sg, and the atomic number, 106. This element was named in honour of Glenn Seaborg -- whilst he was still alive. Professor Seaborg co-synthesised several of these transuranium elements that we've been learning about recently.
