This element was discovered in 1803 by W. Wollaston in London. The name comes from the Greek rhodon (rose).
RhI 7.5 eV, RhII 18.1 eV, RhIII 31.0 eV.
Absorption lines of RhI
The RhI lines 3452(2) and 3188(4) in the sun both have an equivalent width of 0.013. Gopka and Komarov (1990) measured Rh in one K5III star.
Behavior in non-normal stars
Jaschek and Brandi (1972) detected RhI in one Ap star of the Cr-Eu-Sr subgroup.
Rh has one stable isotope, Rh103, and 19 short-lived isotopes and isomers.
Rh is produced by both the r process and the s process.
