The total number of neutrons in the nucleus of an atom is called the neutron number of the atom and is given the symbol N. Neutron number plus atomic number equals atomic mass number: N+Z=A. Neutron number plus atomic number equals atomic mass number: N+Z=A.The difference between the neutron number and the atomic number is known as the neutron excess: D = N – Z = A – 2Z. The difference between the neutron number and the atomic number is known as the neutron excess: D = N – Z = A – 2Z. Liquid nitrogen (made by distilling liquid air) boils at 77.4 kelvins (−195.8°C) and is used as a coolant. Cerium is the second element in the lanthanide series.

[7] In 1808 Davy observed that electric current sent through a solution of borates produced a brown precipitate on one of the electrodes. Boron-10, one of the naturally occurring isotopes of boron, is a good absorber of neutrons and is used in the control rods of nuclear reactors, as a radiation shield and as a neutron detector. Neptunium is the first transuranic element. In nuclear industry gadolinium is commonly used as a neutron absorber due to very high neutron absorbtion cross-section of two isotopes 155Gd and 157Gd.

In nature, boron consists of a mixture of two stable isotopes — boron-10 (19.9 percent) and boron-11 (80.1 percent); slight variations in this proportion produce a range of ±0.003 in the atomic weight. The rare mineral is called sassolite, which is found at Sasso, Italy. [14][15] Boron compounds were relatively rarely used until the late 1800s when Francis Marion Smith's Pacific Coast Borax Company first popularized and produced them in volume at low cost. In his subsequent experiments, he used potassium to reduce boric acid instead of electrolysis. [88] Nuclear applications of boron carbide include shielding, control rods and shut-down pellets. Thorium is moderately hard, malleable, and has a high melting point. Pure germanium is a semiconductor with an appearance similar to elemental silicon.

Although classified as a rare earth element, samarium is the 40th most abundant element in the Earth’s crust and is more common than such metals as tin. [B12H12]2−. [141] Dietary supplementation of boron may be helpful for bone growth, wound healing, and antioxidant activity,[142] and insufficient amount of boron in diet may result in boron deficiency. Lead has the highest atomic number of any stable element and concludes three major decay chains of heavier elements. About half of all boron consumed globally is an additive in fiberglass for insulation and structural materials.
