Rhenium: the essentials

Rhenium atoms have 75 electrons and the shell structure is 2.8.18.32.13.2. The ground state electronic configuration of neutral rhenium is [Xe].4f14.5d5.6s2 and the term symbol of rhenium is 6S5/2.

Rhenium: description  

Rhenium is silvery white with a metallic lustre; its density is exceeded only by that of platinum, iridium, and osmium, and its melting point is exceeded only by that of tungsten and carbon. It has other useful properties. It is expensive but useful as a trace alloying agent.

Rhenium: isotopes

Isotope abundances of rhenium
Isotope abundances of rhenium with the most intense signal set to 100%.

Both Rhenium isotopes are used for medical purposes. Re-185 is used for the production of Re-186 which is used for bone pain palliation. Re-187 can be used for the production of Re-188 which is used for cancer therapy and restenosis, though most Re-188 is produced via W-186.
