New Elements Get Named


Throw out your periodic charts because four newly discovered elements have been named. From Science News, they are nihonium (Nh), moscovium (Mc), tennessine (Ts) and oganesson (Og). These names replace clumsy placeholder names: ununtrium, ununpentium, ununseptium and ununoctium. Science Notes provides the large JPG chart download here.
