Metals A solid substance that is a good conductor of heat and electricity. Can be formed into many shapes.
Metalloid "Middle elements" - conduct heat and electricity better than nonmetals, but not as well as metals. Easier to shape than nonmetals, but not as easy as metals. Solid at room temperature.
Nonmetals A poor conductor of heat and electricity. Not easily formed into shapes.
Heavy and Super Heavy Elements All heavy elements are produced artificially in cyclotron experiments.
The Final Element? Element 114 and The Island of Stability.

Interesting points about the Periodic Table and the "man made" elements

Ninety-four elements exist in nature. Element 94 is Plutonium {Pu} . Scientists have spent 60 years creating elements in the lab, registering 21 man made elements so far. ( Element 43: Technetium and Element 61: Promethium are often considered man made, but ultra-low traces of both elements have been found in certain Pitchblende Ores, Pitchblende is a naturally occuring Uranium ore. ) Some of the more recent manufactured elements are so unstable that they disintegrated in milliseconds. Since the sixties, scientists have theorized that around element 114 an "island of stability" will exist. Around this island the half-life of element 114 should be measured in years not milli-seconds.
According to V. Rydnik in his book ABC OF QUANTUM MECHANICS, He is certain the last number in our list of building atoms is 120. "This means that the nuclei (and the atoms as well, naturally) cannot, under any circumstances, have more than about 120 protons."

If this is the case element 114 with a theorized stable configuration of 114 protons and 184 neutrons will be the Final Element with any practical application to man.

Stability in the Periodic Table and the Final Element

The element 114 (Uuq) has been created !

Physicists in Dubna,Russia have created a new, super-heavy element that lasted a (in Nuclear Physical terms) a surprisingly long 30 seconds before disintegrating.

Other super-heavy man made elements (both lighter and heavier, than element 114) decay in the blink of an eye-ball.

The Dubna scientists made an isotope of element 114 with 175 neutrons. This isotope of element 114 is just off the predicted "island of stability"

Scientists say it falls just short of the 184 neutrons theory dictates would be required for the Island of Stability to be reached.

If the manufactured element contained 114 protons and 184 neutrons, it would be more stable because its nucleus would have a full complement of neutrons and protons. In theory this new stabile element would last years or perhaps even thousands of years!
