IUPAP/IUPAC Joint Working Party on the Discovery of Elements Validates Claims for Four New Elements

By Bradley Sherrill. Published on 25 February 2016 in:
February 2016, News, , , ,

The claims for four new elements have been validated in two new reports from the IUPAC/IUPAP Joint Working Party (JWP) and accepted for publication in Pure and Applied Chemistry. The addition of the four, namely elements 113, 115,117, and 118, represents a significant milestone because it completes the seventh row of the Periodic Table. The new elements add to the remarkable progress in extending the periodic table following 114 and 116 validated in 2011, and element 112 validated in 2009.

A new addition for the periodic table of elements

By Jorge Rivero González. Published on 25 October 2013 in:
News, October 2013, , , , ,

The periodic table of chemical elements may welcome a new element to its big family soon. An international team, led by researchers from Lund University, has presented evidence that confirms the existence of a new element with atomic number 115. The provisional name of the element is ununpentium. The experiment was conducted at the GSI Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Research, located in Darmstadt, Germany.

In the periodic table, chemical elements are arranged by their atomic numbers, i.e. the number of protons in the atom’s…
