And there are also scandium oxide molecules making unfamiliar faces at us.
In 1875 Lecoq de Boisbandram discovered gallium, which filled one of the gaps; scandium and germanium filled the other two later.
The A funnel of vanadium repeats the A funnel of scandium, with the addition of d 20, already studied.
Its group members, scandium and yttrium, have the same form; we have not examined the fourth; the group is positive.
scandium, skan′di-um, n. an element discovered in 1879 in the Scandinavian mineral euxenite.
In yttrium, on the proto level, a 110 and b 63 both escape from the funnel, and behave as in scandium.
Other elements are named from countries or localities, as germanium and scandium.
Nitrogen has nothing new to show us, all its constituents having appeared in scandium and yttrium.
scandium scan·di·um (skān'dē-əm)
A highly reactive metallic element found in various rare minerals and separated as a byproduct in the processing of certain uranium ores. Atomic number 21; atomic weight 44.956; melting point 1,541°C; boiling point 2,830°C; specific gravity 2.99; valence 3.
A soft, silvery, very lightweight metallic element that is found in various rare minerals and is a byproduct in the processing of certain uranium ores. It has a high melting point and is used to make high-intensity lights. Atomic number 21; atomic weight 44.956; melting point 1,540°C; boiling point 2,850°C; specific gravity 2.99; valence 3.
