About PA (Protactinium):
PA (Protactinium), a silvery-gray substance, is a chemical element with atomic number 91. It is a dense, actinide metal that forms various chemical compounds as it readily reacts with oxygen, water vapour and inorganic acids. It is usually found in +5 oxidation state, among +4, +3 and +2 states. It is not present in the Earth's crust in abundance like many other metals. It is being studied for various research purposes owing to its high radioactivity.

- Production of PA (Protactinium) via Nuclear Fission; and via Reduction
In order to produce PA (Protactinium), the reduction process of its fluoride is carried out. In this process, calcium, lithium or barium is used to reduce the fluoride (protactinium tetrafluoride or protactinium pentafluoride) at a temperature of 1300–1400 °C, thus, producing PA (Protactinium) metal.
