Atomic Symbol Bh
presumably a solid at 298 K
Color unknown, but probably metallic and silvery white or grey in appearance
Bohrium is a synthetic element that is not present in the environment. Isolation of an observable quantity of bohrium has never been achieved, and thus bohrium has no known uses. The reactivity of bohrium is unknown, but is assumed to be similar to rhenium and technetium.
Bohrium was first synthesized in 1976 at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research at Dubna, USSR, via
Bismuth(209) + Chromium(54) = Bohrium(261) + 2 neutrons
Bohrium was also synthesized in 1981 by the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung a.k.a the Institute for Heavy Ion Research a.k.a. GSI in Darmstadt, Germany, via
Lead(209) + Chromium(54) = Bohrium(262) + 1 neutron
Bismuth(209) + Chromium(54) = Bohrium(262) + 1 neutron
Also synthesized at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Switzerland, via
Berkelium(249) + Neon(22) = Bohrium(266) + 5 neutrons
Berkelium(249) + Neon(22) = Bohrium(267) + 4 neutrons
Element 107 was officially named bohrium in 1997; named for Niels Bohr, the Danish physicist.
seaborgium <-- bohrium --> hassium
