The Periodic Table has gotten a little bit bigger, as the General Assembly of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) voted to approve three new elements on Friday.
Scientists from the scientific governing committees of physics and chemistry have added two new elements -- yet to be named -- to the periodic table.
A team of scientists at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has detected six isotopes, never seen before, of the superheavy elements 104 through 114.
At GSI Helmholtzzentrum fÃ¼r Schwerionenforschung, an international team of scientists succeeded in the observation of the chemical element 114, one of the heaviest elements created until now.
A collaboration of Russian and US physicists has finally created element 117 - a superheavy element made of atoms containing 117 protons that is roughly 40% heavier than lead.
The name proposed by GSI for the heaviest chemical element has been officially endorsed.
U.S. scientists say they have confirmed the production of the superheavy element 114, 10 years after a Russian group first claimed to have made it. The researchers at the U.S.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have been able to confirm the production of the superheavy element 114, ten years after a group in Russia, at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, first claimed to have made it.
In honor of scientist and astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), the discovering team around Professor Sigurd Hofmann suggested the name â€žcopernicium" with the element symbol "Cp" for the new element 112
A team of German scientists has been credited with the discovery of the new â€œsuper-heavyâ€ element 112 more than ten years after intensive laboratory work first yielded a single atom of the novel form of matter.
