Not necessary for life.
Named for the Danish physicist Niels Bohr, bohrium is a highly radioactive metal. It has never been found naturally and only a small number of atoms have been produced in laboratories. Its chemistry and appearance are not known with any certainty, although the chemistry is believed to be similar to rhenium. Bohrium is too rare to have any commercial or industrial application. The most stable isotope of bohrium has a half-life of a tenth of a second.
Bohrium has no biological use.
Role in Life Processes
No known benefits for life processes in plants and animals.
Bohrium is obtained by the fusion process of bombarding bismuth with chromium.
