ISOTOPE

One of different nuclides having the same number of protons in their nuclei and hence having the same atomic number, but differing in the number of neutrons and therefore, in the mass number. Nearly selfsame chemical properties exist between isotopes of a special element. The use of this term as a synonym for nuclide is to be discouraged.
