Scientists have captured the fundamental chemistry of the element berkelium, or Bk on the periodic table.
To better understand the extent of longevity risk, it is worthwhile toconsider a few points in greatdetail. Exhibit 1 provides period life table historical data from the Center for Disease Control to show remaining life expectancies for males and females at different points in history.

Sodium is volatile, difficult to work with and known for caustic, aggressive properties. It’s like the UFCof the Periodic Table of the Elements. But Michael Lefenfeld, the co-founder and CEO of SIGNaChemistry, argues that those same properties make it an ideal metal for replacing industrial processes that require intense amount of [...]
Trying to actually sit down at a restaurant during lunch hours at work can be stressful. There are so many steps you have to get to in a short period of time, from walking there to waiting for the check. Many people just grab a quick slice of pizza instead. But there's an app that is trying to make it a lot easier to get lunch at work. Show More Summary
The Standard Model is far more than elementary particles arranged in a table. The Standard Model of particle physics is often visualized as a table, similar to the periodic table of elements, and used to describe particle properties, such as mass, charge and spin. Show More Summary
Please consult the periodic table of trash for answers to all your summer smell-related questions. Ah, summer in New York City: the construction men are cat-calling, the subways are muggy as hell, and the air is ripe with the smell of fresh, hot trash. Show More Summary
Elements 113, 115, 117 and 118 will likely now be known as nihonium, moscovium, tennessine and oganesson
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
