The University of Southampton used mass spectrometry to probe samples for plutonium, radium and caesium .
They discovered two new elements, caesium and rubidium in the course of their investigations.
The same cannot be said of logarithms or the reactivity of caesium .
We breathe air polluted with lead, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides from car exhausts, sulphur dioxide from chimney flues, radioactive iodine, caesium and a host of other radionuclides from the flues of nuclear installations.
These elements - lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium, cesium and francium - all react with water to give solutions that change the color of a vegetable dye from red to blue.
Researchers are particularly interested in zeolites filled with metal atoms such as cesium .
Because of the very slow natural process of decontamination of soil tainted by strontium 90, cesium 137, and plutonium, the agricultural consequences will persist for forty to fifty years.
The alkali metals are silver colored except for cesium , which is pale gold.
Reasonable permeation free energy profiles are obtained for potassium, rubidium, and cesium ; binding wells are shallow and the central barrier is small.
Those that produce a measurable spectrum when subjected to flame include, but are not limited to, lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium, cesium , magnesium, calcium, strontium, barium, zinc, and cadmium.
