Promethium is one of only two such elements that are followed in the periodic table by elements with stable forms. All of its isotopes are radioactive. In nuclear reactors, promethium equilibrium exists in power operation. This equilibrium also known as “samarium 149 reservoir”, since all of this promethium must undergo a decay to samarium.
Electrical and Magnetic Properties of Promethium
Electrical property refers to the response of a material to an applied electric field. One of the principal characteristics of materials is their ability (or lack of ability) to conduct electrical current. Indeed, materials are classified by this property, that is, they are divided into conductors, semiconductors, and nonconductors.

Magnetic property refers to the response of a material to an applied magnetic field. The macroscopic magnetic properties of a material are a consequence of interactions between an external magnetic field and the magnetic dipole moments of the constituent atoms. Different materials react to the application of magnetic field differently.

Electrical Resistivity of Promethium
Electrical resistivity of Promethium is 750 nΩ⋅m.
Electrical conductivity and its converse, electrical resistivity, is a fundamental property of a material that quantifies how Promethium conducts the flow of electric current. Electrical conductivity or specific conductance is the reciprocal of electrical resistivity.
Magnetic Susceptibility of Promethium
Magnetic susceptibility of Promethium is N/A.
In electromagnetism, magnetic susceptibility is the measure of the magnetization of a substance. Magnetic susceptibility is a dimensionless proportionality factor that indicates the degree of magnetization of Promethium in response to an applied magnetic field.
