Albrecht-Schmitt. The goal of this presentation is to provide a context for understanding how the chemistry of actinides like plutonium is different from both transition metals and lanthanides. We will also spend some time discussing peaceful applications of radioisotopes and the roles that f-elements play in modern technology. We will delve into how relativity drastically alters chemistry deep into the periodic table and how this has resulted in unexpected chemistry late in the actinide series with a focus on the chemistry of californium.\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"contact\"\u003eChristopher Graves, cgraves1@swarthmore.edu, 610-690-4882\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"location\"\u003e, Science Center, Science Center : Science Center 199 - Cunniff Hall\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"image\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"http://calendar.swarthmore.edu/calendar/displaymedia.aspx?whatToDo=picture&id=4404\" border=\"0\" alt=\"Thomas E.
