Title: Physical Preseparation: a Powerful New Method for Transactinide Chemists

Abstract

In recent years, the concept of physical preseparation of single atoms was introduced into the field of transactinide chemistry. The transactinide element of interest is isolated in a physical recoil separator and then extracted from this machine. The beam as well as the unwanted reaction products are strongly suppressed, allowing for the investigation of transactinides in new chemical systems that were not accessible before. The most important aspects of the technique are discussed and the advantages for chemical studies of transactinides are outlined.
