Three New Names in The Periodic Table of Elements

Three New Names in the Periodic Table of Elements.

Lessons of chemical elements may be increasingly complex. Three new elements have now been added in the Periodic Table. General Assembly of International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) has approved the names for the three elements.

These three elements have the numbers 110, 111 and 112, respectively named Darmstadtium (Ds), Roentgenium (Rg) and Copernicium (Cn). 60-member General Assembly approved the naming of people in a meeting at the Institute of Physics (IOP), London, Saturday (05/11/2011) then.

Dr Robert Kirby-Harris, head of the IOP and the Secretary General of IUPAP, as quoted by the Daily Mail last Saturday said the naming of this element has been approved in consultation with physicists from around the world and we are pleased to see them introduced in the periodic table of elements.

LiveScience in its publication last Saturday stated that the three elements of the new element called “superberat” or transuranium. They only exist in the laboratory, not in nature, once shed quickly become another element and difficult to learn. Not much is known about that element.

Although only added to the Periodic Table of Elements, three elements were in fact has long been found. It’s just done because the naming of indirect approval of the organization must match scientists.

In general, an element named after its discoverer, the place is found or the name of honor.Copernicium for example, was created February 9, 1996 under the name ununbium. The name did not change until 2009 when the existence of an element has been demonstrated.The name was taken in honor of Copernicus and Copernicus, the first scientist to claim that the Earth around the Sun.

While Roentgenium found December 8, 1994 with the original name unununium.Roentgenium name then used as a tribute to the services of Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, the scientist who detects X-rays and won the physics Nobel in 1901.

Darmstadtium created by Peter Armbruster and Gottfried Munzenberg with names beginning ununnilium. The name is taken Darmstadtium conducted at the facility for the manufacture of the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research in Germany, located near the city of Darmstadt.

After naming Darmstadtium, Roentgenium and Copernicium, scientists are now working to name the elements 114 and 116 have been added in the Periodic Table element of July.Its official name will appear in a time not far from now.
