Origin of the name The name of the element comes from the Latin Rhenus – the name of the river Rhine in Germany. History The existence of rhenium was predicted by D.I. Mendeleev (“tri-manganese”) in 1871, by analogy with properties of the elements in the same group of the periodic system, but the term “two-manganese” […]
Germanium, Ge (from the Latin. Germania – Germany* a. Germanium; n. Germanium; f. Germanium; i. Germanio) – a chemical element of the fourth group of the periodic system, atomic number 32, atomic mass 72.59. Natural germanium consists of 4 stable isotopes 70Ge (20.55%), 72Ge (27.37%), 73Ge (7.67%), 74Ge (36.74%) and one radioactive 76Ge (7,67%) with […]
Rhodium is one of the rarest and most valuable precious metals of the platinum group, discovered at the beginning of the 19th century and named “rose” in translation from ancient Greek. The scientist, who first discovered rhodium, managed to isolate bright pink powder in native platinum solution, which was transformed into a heavy metal of […]
