Ununoctium: reactions of elements

Reaction of ununoctium with air

As no atoms of ununoctium have ever been made, its reactivity with air is unknown. However, based upon the behaviour of radon (immediately above ununoctium in the periodic table), one would predict that it does not react with air.

Reaction of ununoctium with water

As no atoms of ununoctium have ever been made, its reactivity with water is unknown. However, based upon the behaviour of radon (immediately above ununoctium in the periodic table), one would predict that it does not react with water. It would probably dissolve to some extent in water at 20°C (293 K).

Reaction of ununoctium with the halogens

As no atoms of ununoctium have ever been made, its reactivity with the halogens is unknown. One would predict its behaviour to be similar to that of radon (immediately above ununoctium in the periodic table) and xenon (two places above).

Reaction of ununoctium with acids

As no atoms of ununoctium have ever been made, its reactivity with acids is unknown. One would predict its behaviour to be similar to that of radon (immediately above ununoctium in the periodic table) and xenon (two places above).

Reaction of ununoctium with bases

As no atoms of ununoctium have ever been made, its reactivity with bases is unknown. One would predict its behaviour to be similar to that of radon (immediately above ununoctium in the periodic table) and xenon (two places above).
