Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • A transuranic radioactive chemical element with silvery appearance that has the symbol Am and atomic number 95.
  • Four different americium isotopes are 241Am, 242Am, 239Am and 238 Am.
  • Compounds of Americium are americium di oxide, americium bromide, americium chloride and americium iodide.
  • Americium is a man-made radioactive metal that exists as a solid under normal conditions.
  • The process called nuclear transmutation which is nothing but the americium is first separated and converted by neutron bombardment in special reactors to short-lived nuclides.
  • A few atoms of americium can be produced by neutron capture reactions and beta decay in very highly concentrated uranium-bearing deposits.
  • Americium-241 is obtained directly from plutonium upon absorption of one neutron and 242-Am by neutron bombardment of already created Am-241.
  • Properties includes that it readily reacts with oxygen and dissolves well in acids and also it  tarnishes slowly in dry air at room temperature.
  • Adherence very strongly to soil estimated to be 1900 times higher than in interstitial water and binds tightly to loam.
  • It is used as a neutron source, when blended with beryllium in the testing of machinery and in thickness gauges in the glass industry.
  • Americium also is used as a radiation source in medical diagnostic devices and in research.
  • In household applications, commonly used in minute amounts in smoke detectors as an ionization source.
  • In space-related application, americium is a fuel for space ships with nuclear propulsion.
  • Used as a target material in nuclear research to make even heavier element and as a portable source of gamma rays and alpha particles for use in medicine.
