Newly Discovered Element of Periodic Table to be Named after Moscow Region

Russian scientists from the town of Dubna have discovered a new chemical element of the periodoc table.

      Scientists of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna are going to name their discovery Moscovy in honor of the Moscow Region as gratitude for the government of the Moscow Region for monetary assistance.

      Moscovy, the 115th element of the periodic table is a superheavy element, a product of disintegration of dubnium.

      Over the past few years scientists managed to receive five new elements (113-118 atomic numbers) and synthesize 49 new isotopes with the help of a grant on the Factory of Superheavy Elements project. Pesently the laboratory researchers work on receiving the 119th element of the periodoc table.

      It is a reminder, dubnium was discovered in Dubna town in 1970.
