Literature References: Lr; formerly Lw; at. no. 103; valence 3. Man-made radioactive element. No stable nuclides; known isotopes (mass numbers): 253-262. Longest-lived known isotope: 262 (T½ 216 minutes, rel. at. mass 262.110). Prepn of first isotope 257Lr (T½ 0.65 sec, a-emitter): A. Ghiorso et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 6, 473 (1961). Prepn of isotope originally assigned mass number 257, later changed to 258 (T½ 4.3 seconds, a-emitter) by bombardment of Cf with boron ions: Eskola et al., Phys. Rev. C 4, 632 (1971). Prepn of isotopes including 256Lr (T½ 28 seconds) by irradiating 243Am with 18O ions: Donets et al., At. Energ. 19, 109 (1965), C.A. 64, 1542c (1966). Reviews: C.
