Fermium by Elliot Rieflin


Uses for fermium

Uses for Fermium

  • only very little fermium has ever been made so fermium has no uses.

  • Scientists don’t think enough will be gathered to tell what it can be used for


Properties of fermium

Properties of Fermium

  • A radioactive metal

  • obtained only in millionth-of-a-gram quantities in nuclear reactors

  • Color is not known

  • melting point 1800 C

  • Phase at Room Temperature is Solid


C o o l facts about fermium

CoolFacts About … Fermium

  • Has a 30min. life span

  • Actinides series

  • Isolated in the debris of a hydrogen bomb test in the Pacific Ocean.

  • The element is named after Enrico Fermi, the atomic physicist.

  • 1952 by G.R. Choppin and co-workers

  • It was by chemical identification of 250Fm,(type of Fermium) that production of Element 102 (nobelium) was confirmed.

  • pronounced FER-mi-em.

  • fermium is produced though a lengthy chain of nuclear reactions that involves bombarding each isotope in the chain with neutrons and then allowing the resulting isotope to go trough beta decay.

  • Also produced by bombarding lighter transuranium elements with still lighter particles or by neutron capture.

  • Also produced by bombardment of plutonium with neutrons.

  • Found in earths crust
