We know the alkali metals (Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs, Fr, Uhe) are chemically reactive, with reactivity increasing with period, Could a Nuclear reaction that has Caesium (or Uue) as a daughter product provide as significant chemical energy as to rival the nuclear energy released/?

OpenStudy (mani_jha):

Na, I dont think so. Nuclear energy is very large compared to chemical energy, because in a nuclear reaction, mass might get converted into energy. Besides, since Cs is more reactive, it will tend not to form as a product, but instead react as a reactant.

OpenStudy (unklerhaukus):

by if there was some fluorine around ,/..

OpenStudy (unklerhaukus):

how much energy would be released when a cation of Francium and Fluorine anion react?

OpenStudy (mani_jha):

First of all, Francium is radioactive and unstable. So, it won't probably react much with fluorine. But if they are made to react, certainly a large amount of energy would be released. During the formation of 1 mole of NaCl, 642 kJ of energy is released. The formation of FrF would release several times this energy, but I don't think it can be formed.
