Critical evaluation of the chemical properties of the transactinide
elements (IUPAC Technical Report)
J. V. Kratz
Abstract: In 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
Sg - their 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.
