Berkelium chemistry exposed
Working with berkelium compounds is extremely challenging because only small amounts of purified isotopes can be made and because of the radioactivity of berkelium and its decay products.
Despite those significant challenges, a team of chemists this week reported the first single crystal structures and other analyses of berkelium(III) compounds (Science 2016, DOI: 10.1126/science.aaf3762). The work demonstrates that berkelium’s chemistry is . . .
