New Elements Discovered And Added To The Periodic Table




Chemistry : formally before the the discovery of the new elements, the periodic table had over 100 elements. Now a group of scientists found new elements to be included.

The periodic table is an arrangement of the chemical elements, organized on the basis of their atomic numbers, electron configurations and recurring chemical properties.


 Elements are presented in order of increasing atomic number. The standard form of the table consists of a grid of elements, with rows called periods and columns called groups.

The new elements are: Nihonium, moscovium, tennessine, and oganesson. This new elements will grace the blocks assigned to atomic numbers 113, 115, 117, and 118, said the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

Nihonium, discovered by a Japanese team, means “the land of the rising sun,” while moscovium and tennessine are named after places near the labs where they were discovered (Moscow and Tennessee, of course). And oganesson recognizes the work of Russian chemist Yuri Oganessian.
