Is CS 137 dangerous? Cesium-137 is an especially dangerous fission product because of its high yield during fission, moderate half-life, high-energy decay pathway, and chemical reactivity. Because of these properties, cesium-137 is a major contributor to the total radiation released during nuclearaccidents.

How many isotopes does cesium have? Caesium (55Cs) has 40 known isotopes, making it, along with barium andmercury, one of the elements with the most isotopes. The atomic masses of these isotopes range from 112 to 151. Only one isotope, 133Cs, is stable.
