  • Technetium is the chemical element and has atomic number 43 and it is the lowest atomic number element without any stable isotopes and TC is the symbol of technetium.
  • It is  most uses for a radioactive tracer that can be distributed throughout the body. All technetium is produced synthetically and only minute amounts are found in nature.
  • It was predicted long before it was actually discovered and it is a silvery gray transition metal that is naturally found in uranium ore.
  • The common oxidation states of technetium are +7, +5, and +4. Under oxidizing conditions technetium will exist as the pertechnetate ion, TcO4-.It was the first element to be produced artificially.
