Top 10 interesting facts about Livermorium

  • Livermorium was discovered in 2000 at Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Russia and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Livermorium was named after Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory which was named (partly) after Livermore, California.
  • Its melting point is predicted to be somewhere between 637-780 K (364-507 C, 687-944 F) and its boiling point is predicted to be between 1035-1135 K (762-862 C, 1403-1583 F).
  • Livermorium is a synthetic element created in laboratory.
  • Livermorium is used for research purposes only and it has never been observed in nature.
  • Livermorium is a heavy element and it is very radioactive.
  • Livermorium got its name in 2012 (may 12th).
  • Livermorium has four unstable isotopes: 290-Lv, 291-Lv, 292-Lv, and 293-Lv.
  • Livermorium-293 is the most stable isotope of livermorium with a half life of 60 milliseconds.
  • Livermorium is believed to have similar properties to his lighter homologues oxygen, sulfur, selenium, tellurium, and polonium (of course, it has several differences as well).
  • Livermorium is very harmful to life because of its radioactivity.
