Darmstadtium , 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.

Darmstadtium‘s appearance is unknown. Little is known about the element and it has no known uses. Darmstadtium is a synthetic element that is not present in the environment.

Darmstadtium is a is a D-Block, Group 10, Period 7 element. The number of electrons in each of Darmstadtium‘s shells is 2, 8, 18, 32, 32, 17, 1 and its electronic configuration is [Rn]7s15f146d9. In its elemental form Darmstadtium‘s CAS number is 54083-77-1.

Made by fusing nickel atoms and lead atoms, Darmstadtium was first synthesized in 1994 at the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung (GSI) in Darmstadt, Germany by Peter Armbruster and Gottfried Münzenberg, under the direction of professor Sigurd Hofmann.
