- Researchers are particularly interested in zeolites filled with metal atoms such as cesium.
- While cesium and strontium, the two materials found in the generators, cannot be used to make nuclear weapons, they could contaminate large areas if combined with explosives.
- However, water-soluble rubidium, cesium, thallium, and silver minerals are virtually nonexistent and should pose no complication.
- Fifteen years after the disaster, Bulgaria still suffers from the effects - mostly in the form of increased levels in the environment of cesium and strontium.
- They also can form condensates out of numerous different elements, including sodium, potassium, lithium, cesium, hydrogen and helium.
- Food irradiation uses gamma rays from cesium - 137 and cobalt - 60, which are capable of causing chemical changes in these foods.
- The same cannot be said of logarithms or the reactivity of caesium.
- These elements - lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium, cesium and francium - all react with water to give solutions that change the color of a vegetable dye from red to blue.
- In addition to this, the government-sponsored nuclear industry regularly released enormous quantities of radioactive Iodine, cesium, and strontium into the atmosphere just to see what might happen.
- We're using our big laser system to study the detailed atomic physics of xenon with other alkalis besides rubidium, such as cesium and potassium.
- The alkali metals are silver colored except for cesium, which is pale gold.
- Once ingested, radioactive plutonium, cesium and strontium atoms morph into agents of death in the body, stealthily emitting radiation internally and constantly bombarding the genes of nearby cells.
- Later, the radioactive cesium or strontium is trapped in the zeolite and is excreted.
- We breathe air polluted with lead, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides from car exhausts, sulphur dioxide from chimney flues, radioactive iodine, caesium and a host of other radionuclides from the flues of nuclear installations.
- Those that produce a measurable spectrum when subjected to flame include, but are not limited to, lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium, cesium, magnesium, calcium, strontium, barium, zinc, and cadmium.
- The University of Southampton used mass spectrometry to probe samples for plutonium, radium and caesium.
- They mapped the patterns made by known elements and discovered many new ones, including rubidium and cesium.
- They discovered two new elements, caesium and rubidium in the course of their investigations.
- Reasonable permeation free energy profiles are obtained for potassium, rubidium, and cesium; binding wells are shallow and the central barrier is small.
- Because of the very slow natural process of decontamination of soil tainted by strontium 90, cesium 137, and plutonium, the agricultural consequences will persist for forty to fifty years.
