Element 106 named in honor of Glenn T. Seaborg

By Lynn Yarris, [email protected]

Element 106, which was created at LBL in 1974 and confirmed here last summer, has been named "seaborgium" in honor of Nobel Laureate and LBL Associate Director-at-Large Glenn T. Seaborg. It is the first time an element has been named for a living person.

"This is the greatest honor ever bestowed upon me--even better, I think, than winning the Nobel Prize," said Seaborg, the co-discoverer of plutonium and nine other transuranium elements. "Future students of chemistry, in learning about the periodic table, may have reason to ask why the element was named for me, and thereby learn more about my work."

The name seaborgium, with its chemical symbol of "Sg," was announced on Sunday, March 13, at the 207th national meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Diego. The announcement was made by Kenneth Hulet, retired chemist from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and one of the co-discovers of seaborgium. Hulet made the announcement while accepting the ACS Award for Nuclear Chemistry for his lifetime achievements in the field.

Seaborgium is the newest name to be added to the family of "transuranium" elements--those beyond uranium on the periodic table. Uranium, element 92, is the heaviest known naturally-occurring element. The transuranium elements can be artificially created in particle accelerators.

Seaborgium has a half-life of less than a second. It was first created and identified in 1974 in an experiment conducted at LBL by a team of LBL and LLNL researchers led by Hulet and LBL physicist Albert Ghiorso.

According to criteria proposed by nuclear science researchers in the 1970s, the naming of a new element is the prerogative of the original discovery team, but proposal of a name should await independent confirmation of the discovery.

Seaborgium was finally confirmed in 1993 in an experiment at LBL's 88-Inch Cyclotron that was designed by Ken Gregorich, a divisional fellow in LBL's Nuclear Science Division, and carried out by a team including Gregorich and LBL faculty senior scientist Darleane Hoffman, plus postdoctoral fellows and students from LBL and the UC Berkeley Department of Chemistry. The confirmation was announced last September at the Actinides '93 conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The name seaborgium was chosen to honor the man who shared the 1951 Nobel Prize in chemistry with former LBL Director Edwin McMillan for "their discoveries in the chemistry of the transuranium elements."

Born in 1912 in Ishpeming, Michigan, Seaborg received a Ph.D. in chemistry from UC Berkeley in 1937. He joined the UCB faculty in 1939 and served as chancellor from 1958 to 1961. From 1961 through 1971 he served as chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission (predecessor of the U.S. Department of Energy) under U.S. Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. He then returned to research at Berkeley, where he continues today in his search for new elements and isotopes. In addition to his duties at LBL, Seaborg is currently a University Professor (UC's highest academic position), and chairman of the Lawrence Hall of Science.

Seaborg is perhaps best known for his role in the discovery of plutonium. This took place in 1940, when Seaborg, McMillan, Joseph Kennedy, and Arthur Wahl, using the 60-inch cyclotron built by Ernest Lawrence, bombarded a sample of uranium with deuterons and transmuted it into plutonium. Seaborg and his co-workers used the discovery of plutonium as a stepping stone to the creation of a succession of transuranium elements--americium, curium, berkelium, californium, einsteinium, fermium, mendelevium, nobelium, and now seaborgium.

It was Seaborg who in 1944 formulated the "actinide concept" of heavy element electronic structure which predicted that the actinides--including the first 11 transuranium elements--would form a transition series analogous to the rare-earth series of lanthanide elements. Called one of the most significant changes in the periodic table since Mendeleev's 19th century design, the actinide concept showed how the transuranium elements fit into the periodic table and paved the way for future discoveries.

Seaborg holds more than 40 patents, including the only ones for a chemical element (americium and curium). He is the author of numerous books and more than 500 scientific articles. He has been awarded 50 honorary doctoral degrees and is recognized as a national advocate for science and math education.

On March 15, Seaborg was presented with the ACS's George C. Pimentel Award in Chemical Education for his "outstanding contributions to the education of the world's citizens." The Pimentel award is named for the LBL and UCB chemist and former ACS president who died in 1989 after an outstanding career in research and education.

LBL researchers help U.S. chemical industry "go green"

By Mike Wooldridge, [email protected]

An important part of American industry's efforts to "go green" in the coming decades will be to invent clever ways to extract raw materials from renewable resources. LBL chemical engineer Judson King and coworkers have created two environmentally friendly methods to recover carboxylic acids from plants instead of from oil.

Important in a variety of industries, carboxylic acids serve as the building blocks of nylon (adipic acid), help put the fizz in antacid tablets (citric acid) and give many soft drinks their tart taste (citric acid). Other forms, such as succinic and lactic acid, are important intermediates in many industrial chemical reactions.

The low-cost techniques, devised by King and his colleagues in the Energy and Environment Division, recover carboxylic acids from two important sources: fermentation broths, where microorganisms break down the carbohydrates from plants such as corn; and industrial waste streams, such as the run-off from sugar cane factories.

The techniques themselves produce very little waste since the acids are extracted with chemicals that can be recycled. Traditional carboxylic acid recovery techniques generate massive amounts of calcium sulfate as a waste product.

"Using waste streams as sources also gives companies essentially a zero-cost raw material," King says. "They can recover carboxylic acids and take care of a waste problem at the same time."

The new methods may also allow companies to make acid-based products that in the past have been too expensive to manufacture. King is currently tailoring the techniques to produce a non-corrosive salt from acetic acid for use in de-icing roads. The methods may also help companies trying to create biodegradable plastics from lactic acid. Cargill, Inc., a Midwestern grain manufacturer, constructed an $8 million plant in Minnesota last year to develop plant-based plastics.

Scientists currently separate carboxylic acids formed in fermentation processes by adding calcium, which forms a solid calcium carboxylate salt that drops out of solution. They then add sulfuric acid to the salt, which regenerates carboxylic acid along with calcium sulfate.

"Places that produce citric and lactic acid create piles and piles of calcium sulfate that they can't use," King says. "The hills you see around some of the factories are actually grass-covered mounds of calcium sulfate."

The first invention, recently patented and for use primarily with fermentation broths, removes carboxylic acids from solution with amine-based extractants. The carboxylic acids are freed from the extractants by transferring them to a second, more strongly binding amine molecule, which is subsequently boiled away.

The second recovery method, for use mainly with waste streams, makes use of an unusual solubility phenomenon found for carboxylic acids. Some carboxylic acids that are generally very insoluble will dissolve much more readily into certain organic solvents if the solvents contain a small amount of water.

The technique removes carboxylic acids from solution by letting them diffuse into such a water-containing solvent. Scientists recover the carboxylic acids by boiling the water away, which causes the acid to drop out of the solvent as a solid.

Heart attack? Don't wait at home

The average heart attack victim waits three hours before going to a hospital emergency room. That's unfortunate, because the new blood-clot dissolving drugs now stocked by hospital emergency rooms work best if they're administered as soon as possible after heart attack symptoms appear.

If you experience any of the classic signs of a heart attack, get to a hospital emergency room as soon as possible.

* Signs to look for include uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, tightness, burning, or other aching under the breastbone that lasts two minutes or more and is not relieved by nitroglycerine tablets.

* Other common places for pain to be felt include: neck and jaw, inside arm and shoulder (left side more frequently than right), upper abdomen (often mistaken for indigestion pain), and between the shoulder blades.

* The pain may be continuous, or may come and go.

* Often there is shortness of breath, dizziness, weakness, clamminess, sweating, and nausea.

Teachers become students for a day at 4th annual BASTEC conference

The Bay Area Science and Technology Education Collaboration (BASTEC) held its fourth annual conference on Friday, Feb. 11, at Castlemont High School in Oakland. More than five hundred teachers from the Oakland Unified School District participated in the event.

Thirty-five sessions and 31 workshops were offered to give teachers the opportunity to hear and work with some of the Bay Area's top educators and scientists. María Alicia López-Freeman, Director of Special Projects for the California Science Project, gave the keynote address, highlighting the special emphasis of this year's conference, "Multiculturalism in the Core Curriculum."

Rollie Otto, Director of LBL's Center for Science and Engineering Education, was among the presenters, discussing activities for middle and high school teachers to help students learn about the periodic table.

BASTEC is funded by the Department of Energy, and was established to promote improvements in math and science education in Oakland schools.
