Seaborgium

Seaborgium (Sg) is a radioactive metal that has the atomic number 106 in the periodic table, its appearance is not fully known due to the minuscule amounts produced of it. It is a Transition metal in Group 6. It has the symbol Sg.

Seaborgium is a synthetic element that is named after the American scientist Glenn Seaborg, famous for the discovery of many radioactive elements. Having a half life of 14 minutes means Seaborgium is very hard to study so a lot of its physical properties are unknown. In 1974 a few atoms of Seaborgium were created in the Soviet Union by Yuri Oganessian, a few months later Seaborg and his team at Berkeley also synthesised Seaborgium. It was decided in 1994 that Seaborgium could not be named after a living scientist but after much controversy the name Seaborgium was reinstated in 1995. As so little of it has been created, the melting and boiling point have not been analysed.

Transition metal is any of various chemical elements that have valence electrons (electrons that can participate in the formation of chemical bond) in two shells instead of only one. They form group 3 (IIIb) through group 12 (IIb).
