Abstract

Some highlight examples on the study of production and chemical properties of heaviest elements carried out mostly at GSI Darmstadt are presented. They focus on the production of some of the heaviest known elements (114Fl, 115Mc, and 117Mc), studies of non-fusion reactions, and on chemical studies of 114Fl. This is the heaviest element, for which chemical studies have been performed to date.

Keywords: Production of superheavy elements; chemical studies of transactinide elements

Dedicated to: The memory of Professor Günter Herrmann.
