Table of nuclides (complete)

Table of nuclides (complete)

The isotope table below shows isotopes of the chemical elements, including all with half-life of at least one day. [The data for these tables came from Brookhaven National Laboratory which has an interactive [ Table of Nuclides] with data on ~3000 nuclides.] They are arranged with increasing atomic numbers (proton numbers) from left to right and increasing neutron numbers from top to bottom.

Cell colour denotes the half-life of each isotope; if a border is present, its colour indicates the half-life of the most stable nuclear isomer. If you’ve scrolled so the colour legend is not in view, allowing your cursor to dwell over a cell will cause a pop-up text box to indicate that isotope’s half-life. If a cell has a white or yellow border, dwelling over it will also disclose the half-life of the most stable nuclear isomer state.
