ABSTRACT Every atom counts: New data for the adsorption chromatographic behavior of single atoms of element 112 confirm a metallic character involved in their interaction with a gold surface, similar to the lighter homologues Zn, Cd, and Hg. The elemental volatility of element 112 is much higher than that of lighter homologues of Group 12 of the periodic table, as empirically deduced from the experimental results.
