Oganesson History

Naming:  In honour of Yuri Oganessian (Russian nuclear Physicist)

Discover By: Scientists from Joint institute for Nuclear Research (JINR), in Dubna (Russia) and Lawrence Livemore National Laboratory (LLNL), In California (USA) (2002)

Prediction by:  Hans Peter Jorgen Julius Thomsen (1895)

Discovery of Oganesson Element

In 1998, Polish physicist Robert Smolańczuk suggested by calculations that it might be possible to make oganesson by fussion Lead with krypton under carefully controlled conditions.

In 1999, at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), The Researchers announced the discovery of Oganesson and Livermorium, where they reported thet they had performed the reaction.

20882Pb + 8636Kr → 293118Og + n.

In 2002, At the Joint Insititute for Nuclear Research (JINR), the first decay of atoms of Oganesson was observed by a joint team of American and Russian scientists, which headed by Yuri Oganessian. But The discovery was not immediately announced, as the decay energy of 294Og corresponded to 212mPo.

In 2005, Researchers produced more Oganesson atoms for the experiment confirmation.

In 2006, th researchers announced that they had detected indirectly three or four nuclei of Oganesson-294 (1 or 2 in 2002 and 2 more nuclei in 2005), via collisions of Calcium-48 ions and Californium-249 atoms.

24998Cf + 4820Ca → 294118Og + 3 n.

In 2011, International union of pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) evaluated the results of 2006 of (JINR)-(LLNL) Collaboration.

In experiments, alpha-decay of three atoms of Ogenson was observed. A fourth decay was also proposed by direct spontaneous fission.

294118Og → 290116Lv + 42He

Identification of the 294Og nuclei was verified by separately creating 290Lv through a bombardment of 245Cm with 48Ca ions.

24596Cm + 4820Ca → 290116Lv + 3 n.

In June 2016, Discoverers planned to give the name of this Unknown discover element is Oganesson (Og) in honour of Yuri Ognesian, and finally on 29 Nov. 2016, the name became official.

 Oganesson Uses

Since only a few atoms of Ogenson have ever been created, so at present, it has no practical use outside of the scientific study.

Biological role of Oganesson Element

It has no known biological role.

Sources of Oganesson 

Russian scientists produced Oganesson through bombarded Californium’s atoms with calcium ions for 1,080 hours, got three atoms of Oganesson in resulted.
