Facts about Berkelium

Berkelium

X-ray diffraction techniques have been used to identify various berkelium compounds such as berkelium dioxide (BkO2), berkelium trioxide (BkO3), berkelium fluoride (BkF3), and berkelium oxychloride (BkOCl).

Berkelium

The isotopes of berkelium range in atomic weight from 235.057 amu (235Bk) to 254.091 amu (254Bk).

Berkelium

Berkelium (chemical symbol Bk, atomic number 97) is a synthetic, radioactive chemical element, classified as an actinide.

Berkelium

In 1962, visible amounts of berkelium chloride (BkCl3) were isolated that weighed 3 billionths of a gram.

Berkelium

Berkelium was first synthesized by Glenn T. Seaborg, Albert Ghiorso, Stanley G. Thompson, and Kenneth Street, Jr., at the University of California, Berkeley in December 1949.
