What are uses for Einsteinium?
Can Einsteinium be merged with any other element to make something useful?
What color is Einsteinium?
Can Einsteinium be used in nuclear warfare?
Can Einsteinium be used in curing diseases?
I don't think Einsteinium is used for anything other than theoretical
calculations. They discovered it in a thermonuclear explosion and can
also make it by irradiating plutonium...for several years! If you want
to read more, The Merck has some review articles cited. One that may
be of interest (and fairly understandable) would be:
Scientific American 195 (6), 67-80, (1956) by Ghiorso and Seaborg.
Seaborg also has an article in the Journal of Chemical Education
36, 38 (1959).
I know they're old articles but anything more recent
(if there is anything more recent!) would probably be REAL technical.
