Glenn T. Seaborg

Születési dátum: 19. április 1912
Halál dátuma: 25. február 1999

Glenn Theodore Seaborg amerikai vegyész volt, aki 1951-ben elnyerte a kémiai Nobel-díjat a transzurán elemek kémiai tulajdonságai terén tett felfedezéseiért, és részese volt tíz elem felfedezésének vagy izolálásának. A tíz elem a plutónium, amerícium, kűrium, berkélium, kalifornium, einsteinium, fermium, mendelévium, nobélium és a 106-os rendszámú elem, amit még életében sziborgiumnak neveztek el, az iránta való tiszteletből. Több mint száz atomi izotóp felfedezése is a nevéhez fűződik.

Pályája nagy részében a kaliforniai Berkeley Egyetemen dolgozott oktatóként és tudományos kutatóként, Harry S. Trumantól Bill Clintonig 10 amerikai elnök nukleáris tanácsadója volt. 1961 és 1971 között ő volt az Amerikai Egyesült Államok atomenergetikai bizottságának elnöke. Szerepelt a neve a Guinness Rekordok Könyvében is, mint a Who's Who in America című kiadványban leghosszabb szócikkel szereplő személy. Wikipedia

Idézetek Glenn T. Seaborg

„There is a beauty in discovery.“

—  Glenn T. Seaborg

Statement upon being appointed as UC Berkeley chancellor in 1958, as quoted Biographical Memoirs (2000) edited by Darleane C. Hoffman, p, 252 <!-- ISBN 0-309-07035-X National Academies Press-->
Kontextus: There is a beauty in discovery. There is mathematics in music, a kinship of science and poetry in the description of nature, and exquisite form in a molecule. Attempts to place different disciplines in different camps are revealed as artificial in the face of the unity of knowledge. All literate men are sustained by the philosopher, the historian, the political analyst, the economist, the scientist, the poet, the artisan and the musician.

„I suppose that I should say a few words with respect to the possibility for future production and identification of additional transuranium elements“

—  Glenn T. Seaborg

"The Transuranium Elements : Present Status" Nobel Lecture (12 December 1951) http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/chemistry/laureates/1951/seaborg-lecture.html
Kontextus: I suppose that I should say a few words with respect to the possibility for future production and identification of additional transuranium elements, especially in view of the possibility of their production by heavy-ion bombardment of transuranium elements. As an aid to such a program the radioactive properties can be estimated, as I have already indicated, on the assumption of a smooth nuclear energy surface and the systematics of radioactivity. Again, I must emphasize that such considerations are negated in the event that a stable subshell of 148 neutrons should be found to exist, and this must be regarded as a definite possibility. It is interesting to note that our considerations on the systematics of spontaneous fission28 indicate that this method of decay will not compete seriously with radioactive decay until the region just beyond element 100. … These considerations illustrate clearly that one of the problems is that of conceiving means for producing nuclides of sufficiently high mass numbers with half-lives long enough for chemical identification. Thus, the serious problem is again the paucity of starting materials.
