The Actinides

Table of contents
No headers

The Actinide series contains elements with atomic numbers 89 to 103 and is the sixth group in the periodic table. The series is the row below the Lanthanide series, which is located underneath the main body of the periodic table. Lanthanide and Actinide Series are both referred to as Rare Earth Metals. These elements all have a high diversity in oxidation numbers and all are radioactive. The most common and known element is Uranium, which is used as nuclear fuel when its converted into plutonium, through a nuclear reaction.
