Definition of the Technetium Element
Technetium is a silvery-gray metal that tarnishes slowly in moist air. A radioactive metal, the first synthetically produced element, used as a tracer and to inhibit corrosion in steel. The Atomic Number of this element is 43 and the Element Symbol is Tc.

Origin / Meaning of the name Technetium
The name originates from the Greek word 'technetos' meaning artificial

 

Periodic Table Group and Classification of the of the Technetium Element
Elements can be classified based on their physical states (States of Matter) e.g. gas, solid or liquid. This element is a solid. Technetium 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 Technetium Element
Technetium was discovered by Emilio Segre and Carlo Perrier in 1937 in Italy. Technetium was the first element to be artificially produced.

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