1. atomic number 91 a short-lived radioactive metallic element formed from uranium and disintegrating into actinium and then into lead
  2. atomic number 95 a radioactive transuranic metallic element
  3. atomic number 11 a silvery soft waxy metallic element of the alkali metal group; occurs abundantly in natural compounds (especially in salt water); burns with a yellow flame and reacts violently in water; occurs in sea water and in the mineral halite (rock salt)
  4. atomic number 90 a soft silvery-white tetravalent radioactive metallic element; isotope 232 is used as a power source in nuclear reactors; occurs in thorite and in monazite sands
  5. atomic number 96 a radioactive transuranic metallic element
  6. atomic number 94 a solid silvery grey radioactive transuranic element whose atoms can be split when bombarded with neutrons; found in minute quantities in uranium ores but is usually synthesized in nuclear reactors; 13 isotopes are known with the most important being plutonium 239
  7. atomic number 99 a radioactive transuranic element produced by bombarding plutonium with neutrons
