Element 114

Atomic Number:


Atomic Symbol:

Uuq (temporary)

Atomic Weight:


Electron Configuration:




Element 114 has a 30-second half-life, which is much longer than element 112's. This is evidence of the “island of stability” that was predicted to occur around element 114 (where the combination of protons and neutrons would combine to make a stable structure). 

A beam containing 48Ca  was aimed into a  244Pu target  to make this atom.
