 Definition A silvery-white metallic transition metal, with symbol Sc and atomic number 21. [d] [e]

I suggest that additional information, such as molecular weight, melting point, electronegativity and so on be added for the elements.


Please have a look at this

So who is Tim Worstall? Clearly he knows about scandium45, that is not radioactive, but what of the other isoptopes, 44, 46, 47 and 48, all of which are radioactive. The article is not wrong, just incomplete. Chris Day (talk) 12:33, 8 September 2007 (CDT)

And actually this brings in the inherent problem of using a sidebar, since technically that should only be about Sc45, yet the article will obviously discuss all isotopes; twelve according to Jacob Jensen, the editor that started this article. Chris Day (talk) 12:37, 8 September 2007 (CDT)

No idea who Tim Worstall is. I would love it if we could get some of our chemists involved here. I mailed cz-chemistry; hopefully that will generate a reaction. --Larry Sanger 13:17, 8 September 2007 (CDT)
