Thorium Element in Periodic Table | Atomic Number Atomic Mass

Thorium

Thorium Element:

Thorium is the second chemical element in the actinide series of periodic table, preceded by actinium. Thorium is represented by the symbol Th and its atomic number is 90. Thorium is like actinium is highly radioactive. Its most stable isotope Th-232 is considered as existing from times immemorial and primordial like uranium. Thorium is found in minerlas like monazite, euxenite and thorianite. The abundance of thorium in earth’s crust is three more than uranium and is found in oxidized form.
