Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The iron peak is a local maximum in the vicinity of Fe (V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co and Ni) on the graph "abundances of the chemical elements." For elements before iron, nuclear fusion releases energy. For elements heavier than iron, nuclear fusion consumes energy, but nuclear fission releases it. Chemical elements up to the iron peak are produced in ordinary stellar nucleosynthesis. Heavier elements are produced only during supernova nucleosynthesis. For this reason we have more iron peak elements than in its neighbourhood.show more
