#chempaperaday Day 7/365: "Superheavy Element Flerovium (Element 114) Is a Volatile Metal"

Element 114 was discovered several years ago and was added to the periodic table a few years ago. So, today I read a paper about the properties of Flerovium. Obviously, there is no way I can understand the full article. But the title, introduction and conclusion parts are clear enough to understand that Fl behaves more like a metal than a noble gas. Moreover, it is the least reactive and most volatile in Group 14. And the experiments and calculations have answered the questions that were asked here.
