PARIS, June 8. /TASS/. International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) plans to name two recently discovered elements after Moscow City and the Russian academician Yuri Oganessian, the organization said in a press release published at its official website.
The Mendeleev periodic table will be appended with four new elements. The element with the index 113 will get the symbol Nh and will be named nihonium after Japan (Nihon), while the element with the index 115 will have the symbol Ts and the name tennessine after Tennessee State.
"For the element with atomic number 115 the name proposed is moscovium with the symbol Mc," the press release said. "Moscovium is in recognition of the Moscow region and honors the ancient Russian land that is the home of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, where the discovery experiments were conducted using the Dubna Gas-Filled Recoil Separator in combination with the heavy ion accelerator capabilities of the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions.
"For the element with atomic number 118 the collaborating teams of discoverers at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Dubna (Russia) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (USA) proposed the name oganesson and symbol Og," IUPAC said.
"This proposal is in line with the tradition of honoring a scientist and recognizes Professor Yuri Oganessian (born 1933) for his pioneering contributions to transactinoid elements research."
