Usage Examples English
  • Even though astatine is naturally occurring, it is usually produced by bombarding bismuth with alpha particles.
  • He also assisted Emilio Segrè in the discovery of element 85, astatine.
  • The title refers to the number of atoms of astatine-215 in the top 10 miles of the Earth's crust of the North and South American continents – only a trillion.
  • Most of the period 6 elements are toxic (for instance lead) and produce heavy-element poisoning. Promethium, polonium, astatine and radon are radioactive, and therefore present radioactive hazards.
  • Germanium forms tetrahalides with all halogens except astatine and forms dihalides with all halogens except bromine and astatine.
  • The most stable isotope of astatine is astatine-210, which has a half-life of about 8.1 hours.
  • As part of his Ph.D. work in UC Berkeley, Corson was a co-discoverer of the element astatine. In 1987 he was awarded the Public Welfare Medal from the National Academy of Sciences.
  • In chemistry, an interhalogen compound is a molecule which contains two or more different halogen atoms (fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, or astatine) and no atoms of elements from any other group.
  • The most stable isotope is astatine-210, which has a half-life of 8.1 hours.
  • Organoastatine chemistry describes the synthesis and properties of chemical compounds containing a carbon to astatine chemical bond.
  • Tennessine, despite being in the halogen column of the periodic table, is expected to go even further towards metallicity than astatine due to its small electron affinity.
  • Additionally, astatine has no stable isotopes. The most stable is astatine-210, which has a half-life of approximately 8.1 hours, making its chemical compounds especially difficult to work with, as the astatine will quickly decay into other elements.
  • Emilio Gino Segrè (1 February 1905 – 22 April 1989) was an Italian-American physicist and Nobel laureate, who discovered the elements technetium and astatine, and the antiproton, a subatomic antiparticle, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1959 along with Owen Chamberlain.
