By Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg (auth.), Norman M. Edelstein, James D. Navratil, Wallace W. Schulz (eds.)

The papers integrated during this quantity have been awarded on the symposium on "Americium and Curium Chemistry and expertise" on the foreign Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies in Honolulu, Hawaii, December 16-21, 1984. This symposium venerated 40 years of analysis on americium and curium. for that reason, the papers integrated during this quantity commence with old views at the discovery of americium and curium and the early characterization in their chemical houses, after which hide a variety of matters, reminiscent of thermodynamic houses, digital constitution, nuclear reactions, analytic chemistry, excessive strain section transitions, and technological points. hence, this quantity is a evaluation of the chemistry of americium and curium, and offers a standpoint at the present examine on those components 40 years after their discovery. The editors wish to thank the members during this symposium for his or her contributions. it's a excitement to recognize the help of Ms. Barbara Moriguchi in dealing with the executive features of the symposium and of the construction of this quantity.

Nanostructured Materials for Electrochemical Energy Production and Storage

The foremost challenge dealing with new strength conversion and garage applied sciences is still gadget potency. Designs in accordance with nanostructured fabrics can yield stronger functionality in units utilising electrochemical reactions and heterogeneous catalysis corresponding to batteries and gas and sun cells. Nanoscale buildings dramatically adjust the skin response premiums and electric delivery in the course of the fabric, inflicting a dramatic development in power garage, conversion, and new release.

Since 1965 an important part of the research programmes of the European Institute for Transuranium Elements has been devoted to the study of these two elements situated in the middle of the actinide series and characterized by the localization of 5f electrons. 35 N. M. Edelstein et al. ), Americium and Curium Chemistry and Technology, 35-42. © 1985 by D. Reidel Publishing Company. MULLER Three periods, in part overlapping, can be distinguished corresponding to the following research areas: isolation and purification of americium and curium, preparation of americium and curium metals of high purity and investigation of bonding related properties (structural, thermodynamic, magnetic, electrical, electronic) of the elements.

If such a Sf rare earth series were actually following Ac - but the apparent analogy with the lanthanides was not really going to be apparent until Am and Cm then these new undiscovered elements should have chemical properties similar to Eu and Gd rather than D, Np, and Pu. Even though we have had the opportunity to look in the back of the book and see the answer, the assumptions that led Seaborg to his new formulation of the periodic table look bold even today, and it is rare indeed that anyone has such penetrating insights on the basis of only the scanty evidence that was available at the time.
