What is the element Mendelevium as on the Periodic Table?


What is Mendelevium? Periodic Table Group and Classification of the Mendelevium Element
Elements can be classified based on their physical states (States of Matter) e.g. gas, solid or liquid. This element is a solid. Mendelevium is classified as an element in the Actinide series as one of the "Rare Earth Elements" which can located in Group 3 elements of the Periodic Table and in the 6th and 7th periods. The Rare Earth Elements are of the Lanthanide and Actinide series. Most of the elements in the Actinide series are synthetic or man-made. Nearly 75% of all the elements in the Periodic Table are classified as metals which are detailed in the List of Metals.

 

What is Mendelevium as on the Periodic Table? Definition of the Mendelevium Element
A radioactive transuranic element synthesized by bombarding einsteinium with alpha particles. Mendelevium is the first transferium element. A transuranic element means an element with atoms heavier than those of Uranium with an atomic number greater than 92. The Atomic Number of this element is 101 and the Element Symbol is Md. The original chemical symbol proposed was My but this was changed in 1955.

What is Mendelevium? Origin / Meaning of the name Mendelevium
Named in honour of Dmitri Mendeleev who developed the Periodic Table of the chemical elements.

Facts about the Discovery and History of the Mendelevium Element
Mendelevium was first synthesized in the USA by Albert Ghiorso (team leader), Glenn T. Seaborg, Bernard Harvey, and Greg Choppin in 1955. Discovery credited to Glenn T. Seaborg.

Glenn T. Seaborg
The American scientist Glenn T. Seaborg (1912 - 1999) won the 1951 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for "discoveries in the chemistry of the transuranium elements". Glenn Seaborg contributed to the discovery and isolation of ten elements: plutonium, americium, curium, berkelium, californium, einsteinium, fermium, mendelevium, nobelium and element 106, which was named seaborgium in his honor whilst he was still living. Glenn Seaborg also developed the actinide concept, which led to the current arrangement of the actinoid series in the periodic table of the elements.

What is Mendelevium - IUPAC and the Modern Standardised Periodic Table
The Standardised Periodic Table in use today was agreed by the International Union of Pure Applied Chemistry, IUPAC, in 1985 and now recognises more periods and elements than Dimitri  Mendeleev knew in his day in his day but still all fitting into his concept of  the "Periodic Table" in which Mendelevium is just one element that can be found.
