Abeggium is the fabricated name of a hypothetical element with the symbol Ab and atomic number 143. Abeggium was named in honor of Richard Abegg (1869–1910), who pioneered valence theory. This element is known in the scientific literature as unquadtrium (Uqt), eka-protactinium, or simply element 143. Abeggium is the third member of the dumaside series, found in the third row of f-block (below praseodymium and protactinium); this element is located in the periodic table coordinate 6f3.

Properties Edit

Physical Edit

Like many metals, abeggium is gray that shows only a dull luster. Its molar mass is 394 g/mol while its molar volume is 52.5 cm3/mol, corresponding to its density of 7.58 g/cm3. The speed of sound through the thin rod of metal is 2869 m/s, which is slower than through an average element.

Its liquid state ranges from 656 K to 2904 K, quotient between these values would provide a relatively high liquid ratio of 4.43, meaning its boiling point is 4.43 times hotter than its melting point. However it requires 40 times more energy to boil it than to melt it.

Atomic Edit

Abeggium has the mass number 391, 248 more than its atomic number, corresponding that there are 248 neutrons, and 143 protons that make up the nucleus. Despite it is the third element of the f-block series, there are only two electrons in the f-orbital and didn't add it prior to this element, and the g-orbital needs one more electron to complete its orbital (17/18).

Abeggium has the atomic radius of 155 picometers, identical in value to lithium and masses 394.3 daltons, twice as heavy as gold atom.

Isotopes Edit

Like every other element heavier than lead, abeggium has no stable isotopes. The most stable isotope is 391Ab with a half-life (t½) of just 26 seconds. It undergoes spontaneous fission, splitting into two lighter nuclei plus neutrons like the example.

Ab → 202
Hg + 153
I + 36 1

The most stable abeggium isomer is 388m2Ab with a half-life of 417 milliseconds, 1.6% of the most stable isotope. 388m2Ab decays either by isomeric transition or fission.

Chemical Edit

Based on the element's location on the periodic table, abeggium should have similar chemical properties to the above element protactinium. The common oxidation states are +1 and +3, compared to +5 for protactinium, and has the electronegativity of 1.78, compared to 1.48 for protactinium. So this makes abeggium less reactive than its lighter homologue. So unlike protactinium, it does not corrode when exposed to air even if oxygen is plentiful. It is insoluble in water but slightly soluble in carbon disulfide and mineral acids.

Compounds Edit

Abeggium reacts most readily with free halogens to form very colorful ionic halides, such as fluorine to form AbF or AbF3 (red and orange respectively), chlorine to form AbCl or AbCl3 (blue and green respectively), bromine to form AbBr or AbBr3 (purple and lavendar respectively), iodine to form AbI or AbI3 (light brown and peach respectively). At higher temperatures, it can combine with astatine to form AbAt or AbAt3 (yellow and greenish brown respectively), jointium to form AbJ or AbJ3 (black and gray respectively), and bunsenium to form AbBu or AbBu3 (dun and slight brown-tinted black respectively). Abeggium tarnishes in the air to form Ab2O (light gray) or Ab2O3 (gray) and with nitrogen at high temperatures to form Ab3N (dark gray) or AbN (black).

Occurrence and synthesis Edit

It is almost certain that abeggium doesn't exist on Earth at all, but it is believe to exist somewhere in the universe, at least barely. Since every element heavier than lithium were produced by stars, then abeggium must be produced in stars, and then thrown out into space by exploding stars. But it is theoretically impossible for even the most powerful supernovae or most violent neutron star collisions to produce this element through r-process because there's not enough energy available or not enough neutrons, respectively, to produce this hyperheavy element. Instead, this element virtually can only be made by advanced technological civilizations. An estimated abundance of abeggium in the universe by mass is 2.33 × 10−33, which amounts to 7.82 × 1019 kilograms.

To go along with other such civilizations, humans on Earth may eventually have the capability to synthesize abeggium. To synthesize most stable isotopes of abeggium, nuclei of a couple lighter elements must be fused together, and right amount of neutrons must be seeded. This operation would be extremely difficult since it requires a vast amount of energy and even if nuclei of this element were produced would quickly decay due to its short half-life. Here's couple of example equations in the production of the most stable isotope, 391Ab.
