We elaborate the uses of Dubnium and atomic properties with characteristics. Dubnium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably silver-white or gray metallic with atomic number 105. Its symbol is Db and it belongs to the group of transition metals and its usual state in nature is unknown. Dubnium is located at position 105 on the periodic table.
On this page you can discover the chemical properties of dubnium and information about dubnium and other elements of the periodic table such as tantalum, rutherfordium, scandium or titanium. You will also learn what dubnium is for and you will know its uses through its properties associated with dubnium such as its atomic number or the usual state in which dubnium can be found.
You will be able to see qualities of dubnium such as its melting and boiling point, its magnetic properties or what its chemical symbol is. In addition, here you will find information about its atomic properties such as the distribution of electrons in dubnium atoms and other properties.
For some elements, part of this information is unknown. In these cases we show the properties attributed to them.
The transition metals, also called transition elements, is the group to which dubnium belongs. In this group of chemical elements to which dubnium belongs, are those located in the central part of the periodic table, specifically in block d. Among the characteristics that dubnium has, as well as those of the rest of transition metals, is that of including the d orbital, partially filled with electrons, in its electronic configuration. Properties of this type of metal, among which dubnium is found, are its high hardness, having high boiling and melting points and being good conductors of electricity and heat.
The state of dubnium in its natural form is unknown, presumably solid. Dubnium is a chemical element of unknown appearance, probably silver-white or gray metallic, and belongs to the group of transition metals. The atomic number for dubnium is 105. The chemical symbol for dubnium is Db.
Atomic properties of dubnium
