What is the element Nobelium?


What is Nobelium? Periodic Table Group and Classification of the Nobelium Element
Elements can be classified based on their physical states (States of Matter) e.g. gas, solid or liquid. This element is a solid. Nobelium
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 Nobelium as on the Periodic Table? Definition of the Nobelium Element
A Radioactive metallic transuranic element, belonging to the actinoids. A transuranic element means an element with atoms heavier than those of Uranium with an atomic number greater than 92. It is also known as unnilbium. Nobelium does not occur naturally. It has not yet been found in the earth’s crust and it is so unstable that any amount formed would decompose to other elements very quickly. The Atomic Number of this element is 102 and the Element Symbol is No.

What is Nobelium? Origin / Meaning of the name Nobelium
Named in honour of Alfred Nobel, the discoverer of dynamite and founder of the famous Nobel prizes.

Facts about the Discovery and History of the Nobelium Element
Nobelium was discovered by Albert Ghiorso, Glenn T. Seaborg, John R. Walton and Torbørn Sikkeland in 1958 at the University of California, Berkeley.

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 Nobelium - 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 Nobelium is just one element that can be found.
