The element Hassium has a wide range of useful chemical properties, but it is also very unstable and difficult to produce in large quantities. It is therefore only used in research and development. The element has a very high density, making it the densest known substance.

Hassium is a synthetic transactinide element with atomic number 108. It was produced in 1984 by Peter Armbruster and Gottfried Munzenberg at GSI (Gesellschaft fur Schwerionenforschung) in Germany by bombarding lead nuclei with iron ions. Its chemistry is expected to be similar to that of its homologue in group 8, osmium.

It is a silvery-white metal with a melting point of 2795°C and a boiling point of 4400°C. Hassium is a very reactive element and reacts with oxygen, fluorine, nitrogen, hydrogen and chlorine to form many compounds. These compounds are mostly organic and have relatively weak covalent bonds. They are usually soluble in liquids and soft solids, but are immiscible in gases.

This is because the strong nuclear forces between atoms of Hassium are offset by the weaker intermolecular forces between their molecules. These weak interactions give Hassium compounds their low melting and boiling points and contribute to their soft bulk character.

Like all elements, Hassium has a characteristic magnetic field that can be detected with magnetometers. It also has a negative electron affinity and a high neutron binding energy, making it unfavorable for nuclear fission or fusion. These factors mean that a great deal of effort must be put into obtaining pure samples of the element.
