- Darmstadtium (Ds) is a synthetic chemical element with atomic number 110 and symbol Ds in the Periodic Table. It was first created by Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung in the year 1994 near a City called Darmstadt, Germany and this is the reason it was named Darmstadtium.
- Presently, there are no uses or applications of Darmstadtium. It is only used for research purposes. Biological use is yet to be known.
- It is a d-block transactinide element in the periodic table and a member of the 7th period which is placed in group 10 elements.
- It was predicted that this element contains similar properties as that of its homologues, palladium, nickel, and platinum.
- The element has no naturally occurring or stable isotopes. The most stable known isotope is darmstadtium whose life is expected be approximately 10 seconds.
These elements have very unstable nuclei and it does not occur naturally in nature. Due to its short life, it is not harmful to the environment.
