    Plutonium. Plutonium - chemical symbol Pu, atomic number 94 - is a silvery, yellow tarnish when oxidized, toxic, radioactive, in six allotropes occuring, chemical element in the group of actinides (transuranium element). Online available information resources about the chemistry and physics of plutonium and the plutonium compounds. The preparation of organic-soluble synthons, the reactivity of plutonium with soft donor atom ligands, and initial characterization of resultant complexes are presented. Homoleptic soft donor complexes are targeted, to contrast with the much larger body of actinide chemistry that focuses covalency and reactivity within one to three sites in the.

    Plutonium and plutonium both are fissile, and hence, they can sustain a nuclear chain reaction. It is very well applicable in nuclear weapons and nuclear reactors. The melting point of plutonium is 0 C and its boiling point is 3, 0 C. What is Plutonium? Plutonium is the second transuranic element with an atomic number of 94 and part of the actinide group of the periodic table. Plutonium is named after planet Pluto similar to its predecessor neptunium named after the planet Neptune. It is an actinide metal with a silvery-gray appearance but when oxidized it forms a dull coating.

"Plutonium is a strong candidate for the weirdest, most fascinating, and most frightening element in the periodic table. For it to be the subject of a book by the acclaimed physicist turned science writer Jeremy Bernstein promises a great by: Plutonium Futures--The Science provided opportunities to examine present knowledge of the chemical and physical properties of plutonium and other actinides in complex media and materials; to discuss the current and emerging science (chemistry, physics, materials science, nuclear science, and environmental effects) of plutonium and actinides relevant to enhancing global nuclear security.

Chemistry of Plutonium (Nuclear science and technology series) by Jesse M. Cleveland (Author) out of 5 stars 1 rating. ISBN ISBN Why is ISBN important. ISBN. This bar-code number lets you verify that you're getting exactly the right version or edition of a book. The digit and digit formats both work.5/5(1).

The history of plutonium requires the explaining of a lot of physics and chemistry. This was one of the most difficult books I've ever read on science history, but Bernstein does a brilliant job of communicating the science involved to the lay reader/5.

Plutonium isotopes ( Pu andPu) are appropriate tracers to follow the dispersion of particulate matter due both to their high affinity for particles and their long half-lives.

The electronic structure of a plutonium-based single-molecule magnet (SMM) was theoretically examined by means of multiconfigurational electronic structure theory calculations, including spin–orbit coupling effects.

Spin–orbit coupling effects were. standing of plutonium chemistry is inadequate and that the new evidence presents an immediate technical chal-lenge to the scientific community.

D. Gellman.Inshortly after the discovery of fission, McMillan and Abelson studied the recoil range of fission products induced by neutrons incident on a thin uranium foil (McMillan, ; McMillan and Abelson, ). While fission products were mostly ejected from the foil, two activities were significantly retained, one with a half-life of 23 min and the other with a half-life of days.
