Livermorium, flerovium join periodic table names

What used to be element 114 is now flerovium, honoring the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions in Dubna, Russia, where it was created. Element 116 is now livermorium, for the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, Calif., home of a scientific team that participated in its creation in Dubna. The chemical symbols are Fl and Lv.

Names proposed for new elements

Scientists have put forward their suggested names for the newest additions to the Periodic Table.
If the names are accepted, element 114 will become Flerovium (Fl) in honour of the physicist Georgiy Flerov.
While element 116 will become Livermorium (Lv), after the Californian laboratory where it was discovered.

New elements added to chemistry's periodic table

Two new elements have been added to the periodic table after a three-year review by the governing bodies of chemistry and physics.
The elements are currently unnamed, but they are both highly radioactive and exist for less than a second before decaying into lighter atoms.
The table is the official compendium of known elements, organised according to properties of their atomic structure.

Two New Superheavy Chemical Elements Formally Recognised

The elements with atomic numbers of 114 and 116 have been recognized by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), which credited a Russia-U.S. collaboration with their discovery. An element's atomic number describes the number of protons in its nucleus. IUPAC has invited the collaborating scientists, from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, to propose names for the new elements. For now elements 114 and 116 retain their provisional number-based names, ununquadium and ununhexium, respectively.

Six New Isotopes of the Superheavy Elements Discovered

A team of scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has detected six isotopes, never seen before, of the superheavy elements 104 through 114. Starting with the creation of a new isotope of the yet-to-be-named element 114, the researchers observed successive emissions of alpha particles that yielded new isotopes of copernicium (element 112), darmstadtium (element 110), hassium (element 108), seaborgium (element 106), and rutherfordium (element 104). Rutherfordium ended the chain when it decayed by spontaneous fission.
