A Super Heavy Element   &   The last Chemical Element

   I name Trinitium    (Tn)   the active element of the Philosopher'Stone of alchemists , the last of the chemical serie of chemical element. It is the gift of God, according alchemists, and Bernard le Trévisan, famous XV century alchimist who said :

Do the gross subtle, and do the subtle thick, so you will obtain the glory of God.

In clear, the Philosopher's Stone is named the glory of God to emphasize the sacred power of our Creator upon every thing.

  • The element does not belong to a third serie of transition : the first is the serie of Lanthanides and the second is the serie of Actinides.

  • The element has some of the properties of Rhodium , Ruthenium and Osmium.

  • Following the unstable elements 119 and 120 coresponding respectively to the IA and IIA groups the filling of electronic shells is similar to the first serie of transition : 121 corresponds to IIIA , 122 to IVA , ... 126 to the VIII group.
  • The atomic number of Trinitium is Z = 126

  • Seaborg thought that the Stability Island contains Z = 114 and Z = 126. What seems to be sure is that Trinitium is the heaviest element of the Periodic Table that may be synthesized.
  • The electronic structure of Trinitium is :  [Rn]   5g14   6d10  7s2   7p6   7d7   8s1

  • The place of the Trinitium may be precised via one of its chemical properties : we know from old alchemy writtings that the Stone has a red color and a strong tinging power. We also know that the Philosopher's Stone is a fluoride and that various colors appear before we get an intense red color. From the color of fluorides of platinium metals summarized by Albert Cotton and Geoffrey Wilkinson (Advanced Inorganic Chemistry , third edition, p.996) and according alchemy books, it seems quite possible that Trinitium which is the heavier element that may be synthesized cannot reach a neutral state without its disintegration, so it necessarily exists as Tn(VI) , Tn(V) or Tn(IV) and its stabilization is possible with fluoride.

  • The element probably exists as a polymer : (TnF12)x or (TnF14)x

  • The element seems to have a negaton decay when stabilized as fluoride.

  • It is the reason why Trinitium owns some of the properties of Rhodium. The product of decay has the electronic structure :
    [Rn]   5g14  6d10  7s2   7p6   7d8   8s1

    Regarding a possible alpha decay of Trinitium, I was skeptical despite I observed alpha peak between 4 and 5 MeV : it appears that heavy and short life elements give high energy alpha. Stabilized Trinitium should not produce high energy alpha, but if alpha are emitted, the energy should be in the range 4 to 5 MeV , like Uranium-238.
    Considering what we know about the active element of the Philosopher's Stone, and taking into account the structure factor of element ( f(Z,A) ) I proposed in 1984, the trick of nuclear radioactivity of Trinitium is as follows :
    - The far Island of stability of Superheavy Elements is around 126.
    - The nucleus may absorb nucleons from its medium.
    - The A - Z increases so the nucleus emits electrons , so 126 gives 127 , then 128.
    - When the nucleus reachs the border of the island of stability it emits one alpha and became again Z = 126
    - The uncommon pseudodecay process starts again !!!
    the Trinitium fluoride which has a very high density (more than 20) appears to be a permanent energy source !!!
    The above process aggrees with alpha spectrometry data recently observed.
    If you consider the curve f(Z,A) I proposed few years ago : after Z = 126 , you have an asymptotical line; If we relate this fact with what occurs in Universe, I say that beyond Z = 126 we have the zone of creation of very dense nuclear matter, I mean atomic black hole : It is clear the creation of black hole had to start with an elementary germ that is necessarily describes by f(Z,A). A good description of the phenomenon is the radioactivity of some tons of tailing of uranium ores treatment : If we separate the active elements, mainly polonium and radium , we get a very small amount of product which is very radioactive.

  • The element is created in a chemical medium : a 10 W power natural nuclear reactor.

  • These results have been deduced from experiments, alchemy books, chemistry of elements and the f(Z,A) curve I named the structure factor curve.
    A typical behavior of the alchemical mixture is shown below ; the measurement of gamma has been done for a selected window energy, counting time by peak is 2 minutes, so we get the gamma activity as a function of time :

    a , b , c, d are intervals where no nuclear event occur. Duration of nuclear events is indicated.
    The curious fact is that several times, with different experiments, I observed the same type of set of nuclear events characterized by a single peak followed few minutes later by a cascade of nuclear events. In 1986 I got a = 5 minutes :

    In 2001 I got a = 1 minutes and 40 secondes intense activity). I determined from theory of creation of Trinitium that it may be created via a direct synergy process following a fission of uranium or via a secondary synergy process which uses excited compound nucleus.
    Spontaneous fission produces gamma rays, so the background activity of the mixture includes these gamma peaks. If we suppose a constant rate of induced fission of uranium, we should also get a constant background activity. Consequently strong nuclear events are necessarily related with nuclear reactions of fusion or desintegration of created nuclei.
    We also know that an intense nuclear activity is required to produce the Stone, so when conditions are optimum in 2 minutes should be created (according the equation of creation) a high number of SHE that may be named germ.
    If the medium is inappropriate you should not get this kind of nuclear events : only a single peak. If the medium is appropriate, the germ of SHE may live a long time, but it may also be disintegrated : multiplication of the Stone is based on this fact.
