Why are we here? Four new elements are about to be added to the periodic table: nihonium (Nh, element 113), moscovium (Mc, element 115), tennessine (Ts, element 117), and oganesson (Og, element 118). When you say “new” … New to the table. Show More Summary
Tweet Follow @Sci_ents The seventh row of the periodic table is complete, resplendent with four new names for the elements 113, 115, 117 and 118. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (the organisation charged with naming the elements) has suggested these should be called nihonium (Nh); moscovium (Mc); tennessine (Ts) and oganesson (Og) … Continue reading »
In five months, they'll be official.
The new superheavy, radioactive elements were added to the periodic table last year but given temporary and unremarkable names: ununtrium, ununpentium, ununseptium and ununoctoium.
The organization responsible for naming chemical elements and atomic weights unveils the newest additions to the periodic table.
The new names for the four superheavy, radioactive elements will replace the seventh row’s boring placeholders of ununtrium, ununpentium, ununseptium and ununoctium.
We all know that naming a new baby is never easy; everyone has their opinion and arguments often arise when deciding on a suitable moniker. In a similar way, the naming of new elements on the periodic table is subject to a lot of discussion and comment involving a vast range of constraints, and a committee solely dedicated to the process.

Well, this doesn’t happen terribly often: Scientists recently created/discovered four new elements, and the proposed names have just been announced. I won’t keep you in suspense: Elements 113, 115, 117, and 118 have the proposed names,...Show More Summary
In January, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) made an announcement that rendered science textbooks everywhere out-of-date: Four new elements had been added to the Periodic Table. The elements, which had made the scientific chart’s seventh row officially complete, didn’t have the sexiest names. Show More Summary

Names were proposed for four elements on the table’s seventh row: Nihonium, moscovium, tennessine and oganesson.
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry recognized the discovery of elements 113, 115, 117, and 118 on the seventh row of the periodic table not too long ago, but now they have real names!
The periodic table of elements will soon be updated with four new names, including three that honor Moscow, Japan, and Tennessee. A total of four new names were recommended Wednesday by an international scientific group, and the fourth is named for a Russian scientist. (more…)

Tennessine is one names for 4 new elements discovered in the past 15 years.
The recently discovered elements 113, 115, 117 and 118 will officially have the names nihonium (Nh), moscovium (Mc), tennessine (Ts), and oganesson (Og) added to the periodic table of elements pending review. The additional names were announced by The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, the body that oversees the periodic table. The IUPAC has […]
Sorry, chemistry students, you've got four new names on the periodic table to memorize. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry announced names for the four newest elements on Wednesday, Nature reports. Those names: nihonium (Nh), moscovium (Mc), tennessine (Ts), and oganesson (Og). According to the Guardian, elements 113,...
Elements 113, 115, 117 and 118 will likely now be known as nihonium, moscovium, tennessine and oganesson
The four recently discovered chemical elements that fill some of the gaps in the Periodic Table have been assigned provisional names by IUPAC, the names are now up for public consultation. There is no lemiu, no bowium, no woganium, no princium. Instead, we have nihonium, moscovium, tennessine, and oganesson. Nihonium and symbol Nh, for the […]
