- Uranium has the second highest atomic weight of the primordially occurring elements, lighter only the plutonium.
- It occurs naturally in low concentrations of a few parts per million in soil, rock and water, and is commercially extracted from uranium-bearing minerals sure as uraninite.
- Uranium metals with almost all non-meta elements and their compounds, with reactivity increasing with temperature.
- Uranium-235 was the first isotope that was found to be fissile. Other naturally occurring isotopes are fissionable, but not fissile.
