Americium Reduction

Chemical Formula: Am
Present as: cation

Americium is a man-made element in the actinide series but has properties more similar to the lanthanides than other actinides. It is transmuted from plutonium and uranium in commercial nuclear reactors. Americium 241 is used in smoke detectors and has much longer half life (432 years). Although the +3 valence is most common, Americium also forms +2 and +4 valence depending on matrix effects and redox potential.
