The element
was created in Italy, by Carlo Perrier and Emilio Segre in 1937.

It is named after the Greek word for artificial,

was the first artificial element ever created.
's most stable isotope, technetium-98, has a half-life of about 4,200,000 years.

It decays into ruthenium-98.

Technetium was created by bombarding molybdenum atoms with deuterons .
Here We Go!
Technetium is special; for it was the first element to ever be made by man, known as an artificial element. It is also radioactive, like Uranium and Plutonium.
Is Technetium A Conductor?
Technetium is a conductor of electricity and also heat to a small degree.
Is Technetium
Yes, it is reactive and it is also radioactive.
Technetium: Other Properties
Technetium is a metal, it's found in group 7 and in period 5, it's a metal at room temperature. It's also radioactive.

Technetium: Physical Properties
Density: 11.5 g/cc
Boiling Point: 4265° C
Melting Point: 2157° C
Isotopes: Yes, Technetium has isotopes.
Crystal Structure: HCP (hexagonal close-packed)
Here We Go!
Technetium Fluoride
Technetium hexafluoride occurs as an impurity in uranium hexafluoride, as technetium is a fission product of uranium.
Technetium Sulfide
It exists, but has very little uses.
Uses + Hazards
Here We Go!
Technetium: Uses
Technetium-99 is used in many medical radioactive isotope tests. Mild carbon steels may be effectively protected by minute quantities of technetium, but this corrosion protection is limited to closed systems because of technetium's radioactivity.
Hazards of Technetium
All technetium compounds should be regarded as highly toxic, largely because of its radiological toxicity.
A living cell is a marvelously delicate balance of interacting materials. Hence any chemical change in a cell, such as radiation however slight, may have serious effects, It may substantially change the normal life processes, or even kill the cell.
