Einsteinium is a soft, silvery, paramagnetic metal. Its chemistry is typical of the late actinides, with a preponderance of the +3 oxidation state; the +2 oxidation state is also accessible, especially in solids. Einsteinium is the element with the highest atomic number which has been observed in macroscopic quantities in its pure form it identified in December 1952 by Albert Ghiorso and co-workers at the University of California History Use of element In 1955 einsteinium-253 was used to create mendelevium for the first time. Less than a picogram of einsteinium-253 was bombarded with alpha particles in Berkeleys 150-centimeter cyclotron.Einsteinium is a synthetic element and is not found naturally. It is produced in nuclear reactors in miniscule amounts from the neutron bombardment of plutonium.1961 einsteinium was produced in a weighable quantity. Fun Facts!! - Einsteinium is a soft, silvery, paramagnetic metal.-high radioactivity.- Visible glow and rapidly damages its crystalline metal lattice- Released heat of about 1000 watts per gram.-highest atomic number which has been observed in macroscopic quantities -Einsteinium has a high rate of nuclear fission that results in a low critical mass for a sustained nuclear chain reaction.
