Lawrencium is a synthetic chemical element with the symbol Lr (formerly Lw) and atomic number 103. It is named in honor of Ernest Lawrence, inventor of the cyclotron, a device that was used to discover many artificial radioactive elements.
Due to its unusual electronic configuration, lawrencium may be more volatile than expected for its position in the periodic table and have a volatility comparable to that of lead. Because lawrencium has only been produced in small quantities, its only use is for scientific research.
