Abstract: The transuranium elements are the chemical elements with atomic numbers higher than 92, the atomic number of uranium. They are all radioactive and artificially produced; only trace amounts of neptunium and plutonium can be found in some uranium-rich ores. In this case, first 239U is formed by neutron capture of 238U, and in two subsequent beta decays 239U is transformed into 239Np and 239Pu.
