Chemical properties of the transactinide elements studied in liquid phase with SISAK
This article starts with a review of the current SISAK liquid-liquid extraction system, as used after the physical preseparator BGS at LBNL for chemical studies of transactinide elements. Emphasis will be on new additions and developments. Then the possibilities offered by the new TASCA separator at GSI and the use of actinide targets at both GSI and LBNL are discussed with respect to future SISAK transactinide experiments. Finally, current and future liquid-liquid extraction systems for studying elements Rf up to Hs are discussed.
