114th and 116th Periodic Table Elements Acquire Names

Two newest additions to the Mendeleev Periodic Table have been given names of Flerovium (Fl, 114th element) and Livermorium (Lv, 116th element).

      The official date of the naming is June 2012 when these were confirmed by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

      Flerovium was synthesised in 2000 at the United Institute of Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia. The group of scientists headed by the academician and the member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Yury Oganesyan worked at the Georgy Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions. Prof. Flerov discovered the spontaneous division of the Uranus's nuclei. The 114th element's name commemorates both Flerov and his Laboratory. 

      Livermorium is named after the city of Livermore, Cal. where the Lawrence Laboratory is located. For years the scientists have been working together with the Flerov Laboratory in the field of synthesis of superheavy nuclei. Interestingly, one of the early names for this new element was Moskovium.
