Bohrium , including Technical Data, Safety Data and its high purity propertiesresearch, applications and other useful facts are discussed below. Scientific facts such as the atomic structureionization energyabundance on Earth,conductivity and thermal properties are included.

Bohrium‘s is appearance is unknown. Little is known about the element and it has no known uses. Bohrium is a synthetic element and therefore is not naturally found in the environment.

Bohrium is a is a D-Block, Group 7, Period 7 element. The number of electrons in each of Bohrium‘s shells is 2, 8, 18, 32, 32, 13, 2 and its electronic configuration is [Rn] 5f146d5 7s2. In its elemental form Bohrium‘s CAS number is 54037-14-8. 

Production of Bohrium was first announced in 1976 by scientists from the USSR and was verified in 1981 in Germany by Peter Armbruster.

Abundance. The following table shows the abundance of Bohrium and each of its naturally occurring isotopes on Earth along with the atomic mass for each isotope.
