Rutherfordium: isolation

Isolation: only very small amounts of of element 104, rutherfordium, have ever been made. The first samples were made through nuclear reactions involving fusion of an isotope of plutonium, 242Pu, with one of neon, 22Ne.

22Ne + 242Pu → 260104Rf + 4 1n

Isolation of an observable quantity of rutherfordium has never been achieved.
