From Transuranic To Superheavy Elements
A Story Of Dispute And Creation
de Helge Kragh
Sobre o livro
The story of superheavy elements - those at the very end of the periodic table - is not well known outside the community of heavy-ion physicists and nuclear chemists. It tells the story or rather parts of the story, of how physicists and chemists created elements heavier than uranium or searched for them in nature.
