Title: Technetium Tetrachloride Revisited: A Precursor to Lower-Valent Binary Technetium Chlorides

Technetium (Tc) is the lightest element that doesn't occur in nature. At UNLV, our radiochemistry program gives us access to Tc and the ability to make various Tc compounds. Here we describe the preparation and characterization of TcCl4. The Tc atom is found to have a magnetic moment and magnetically orders at low temperature. As discerning trends in the transition metals, of which Tc is one, is important for understanding all transition metal compounds, this research is relevant to understanding these materials.
