bohrium is a syntheticchemical element with the symbolbh and atomic number 107. it is named after danish physicist niels bohr. as a synthetic element, it can be created in a laboratory but is not found in nature. all known isotopes of bohrium are extremely radioactive; the most stable known isotope is 270bh with a half-life of approximately 61 seconds, though the unconfirmed 278bh may have a longer half-life of about 690 seconds.
in the periodic table, it is a d-blocktransactinide element. it is a member of the 7th period and belongs to the group 7 elements as the fifth member of the 6d series of transition metals. chemistry experiments have confirmed that bohrium behaves as the heavier homologue to rhenium in group 7. the chemical properties of bohrium are characterized only partly, but they compare well with the chemistry of the other group 7 elements.
