Four new elements find a place on periodic table
« on: February 20, 2016, 10:27:01 PM »
Such is the lot of the modern-day chemist: you wait ages for a new element to turn up and then four come along at once.

Discovered by researchers in Japan, Russia and the US, the four new elements are the first to be added to the periodic table since 2011, when elements 114 and 116 were included.

The new elements, all spectacularly short-lived and highly radioactive, complete the periodic table’s seventh row and render science textbooks around the world out of date.

The US-based International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), the global organisation that governs chemical nomenclature, terminology and measurement, verified the elements on 30 December after poring over studies dating back to 2004.
