Actinium

Chemistry and physics of the chemical element actinium.


Actinium - chemical symbol Ac, atomic number 89 - is a silvery-white, metallic, radioactive, chemical element and the first member of the group of elements known as the actinides. Its crystal structure is face-centered cubic (fcc).

The chemistry of actinium is marked by the +3 oxidation state; due to the radioactive properties and the low availability there are known only a few number of actinium compounds. In addition to the actinium-halides these are some oxygen compounds and actinium phosphate and oxalate.

Below you will find online available information resources about the chemistry and physics of actinium and the actinium compounds.

The Chemistry of the Actinide and Transactinide Elements

The Chemistry of the Actinide and Transactinide Elements is the contemporary and definitive exposition of chemical properties of all of the actinide elements, especially of the technologically important elements uranium and plutonium, as well as the transactinide elements. In addition to the comprehensive treatment of the chemical properties of each element, ions and compounds from atomic number 89 (actinium) through 109 (meitnerium), the multi-volume work has specialized and authoritative chapters on electronic theory, optical and laser fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, organoactinide chemistry, thermodynamics, magnetic properties, the metals, coordination chemistry, separations, trace analysis.

The fourth edition of "The Chemistry of the Actinide and Transactinide Elements" comprises all chapters in volumes 1 through 5 of the third edition (published in 2006) plus a new volume 6. To remain consistent with the plan of the first edition, to provide a comprehensive and uniform treatment of the chemistry of the actinide [and transactinide] elements for both the nuclear technologist and the inorganic and physical chemist, and to be consistent with the maturity of the field, the fourth edition is organized in three parts.
