What is the element Roentgenium as on the Periodic Table?

Definition of the Roentgenium Element - former temporary name: unununium
Roentgenium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Rg (formerly temporarily Uuu) and atomic number 111. It has an atomic weight of 272 making it one of the super-heavy atoms. It is a synthetic element whose only known isotope has a half-life of around 15 ms before it decays into meitnerium. Due to its presence in Group 11 it is a transition metal and so probably metallic and solid.

Origin / Meaning of the name Roentgenium
The name was given in honour of honour of Wilhelm Roentgen.

 

Periodic Table Group and Classification of the of the Roentgenium Element
Elements can be classified based on their physical states (States of Matter) e.g. gas, solid or liquid. This element is a solid. Roentgenium is classified as a "Transition Metal" which are located in Groups 3 - 12 of the Periodic Table. Elements classified as Transition Metals are generally described as ductile, malleable, and able to conduct electricity and heat. Nearly 75% of all the elements in the Periodic Table are classified as metals which are detailed in the List of Metals.

Facts about the History and the Discovery of the Roentgenium Element
Roentgenium was discovered by S. Hofmann at the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, Germany in 1994

What is Roentgenium - 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 Roentgenium is just one element that can be found.
