The IUPAC/IUPAP joint working party on the priority of claims to the discovery of elements 110, 111, and 112 has reviewed the relevant literature pertaining to the several claims. In accordance with the criteria for the discovery of elements, previously established by the 1992 IUPAC/IUPAP Transfermium Working Group, it was determined that the claim by the Hofmann et al. research collaboration for the discovery of element 110 at GSI has fulfilled those criteria. For elements 111 and 112, the… 

On the Claims for Discovery of Elements 110, 111, 112, 114, 116, and 118 (IUPAC Technical Report)

The IUPAC/IUPAP Joint Working Party on the priority of claims to the discovery of new elements has reviewed the relevant literature pertaining to several claims. In accordance with the criteria for

On the discovery of new elements (IUPAC/IUPAP Provisional Report)

Abstract Almost thirty years ago the criteria that are currently used to verify claims for the discovery of a new element were set down by the comprehensive work of a Transfermium Working Group, TWG,

Name and Symbol of the Element with Atomic Number 110 (IUPAC Recommendations 2003)

A joint IUPAC–IUPAP Working Party (JWP) confirmed the discovery of the element with atomic number 110. In accord with IUPAC procedures, the discoverers proposed a name and symbol for the element. The

How to name new chemical elements (IUPAC Recommendations 2016)

Abstract A procedure is proposed to name new chemical elements. After the discovery of a new element is established by the joint IUPAC-IUPAP Working Group, the discoverers are invited to propose a

Name and symbol of the element with atomic number 111 (IUPAC Recommendations 2004)

A joint IUPAC-IUPAP Working Party (JWP) confirmed the discovery of element number 111. In accord with IUPAC procedures, the discoverers proposed a name and symbol for the element. The Inorganic

Transactinide Elements and Future Elements

This chapter gives a brief summary of the reported discoveries, confirmation, and nuclear properties of the claimed and confirmed transactinide elements through the year 2004. However, the primary

Response to 'Discovery of the element with atomic number 112' by Robert C. Barber, Heinz W. Gaggeler, Paul J. Karol, Hiromichi Nakahara, Emanuele Vardaci and Erich Vogt (PAC-REP-08-03-05)

Based on two alpha-particle chains the Joint Working Party (JWP) Report assigns the priority for discovering element 112 to work done in 1996 and 2002 at GSI, Darmstadt. By doing this it ignores the

The search for superheavy elements: Historical and philosophical perspectives

The heaviest of the transuranic elements known as superheavy elements (SHE) are produced in nuclear reactions in a few specialized laboratories located in Germany, the U.S., Russia, and Japan. The

Evolution of the periodic table through the synthesis of new elements

Abstract This brief introduction to the synthesis and chemistry of elements discovered since 1940 is focused primarily on Z=93–118. The goal of this work is not to simply catalogue the nuclear fusion

Synthesis of heavy and superheavy elements

SummaryIn two series of experiments at SHIP, six new elements (Z = 107–112) were synthesized via fusion reactions using lead or bismuth targets and 1n-deexcitation channels. The isotopes were

Evidence for the possible synthesis of element 110 produced by the 59Co+209Bi reaction.

An experiment to synthesize element 110 by the {sup 59}Co+{sup 209}Bi reaction has been performed at the SuperHILAC at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. One event with many of the expected

Excitation function for the production of 265108 and 266109

The excitation function for the production of266109 by the reaction 58Fe + 209Bi was investigated. Its position and width could be reproduced using the same values (E* = 13.9 MeV; FWHM=4.8 MeV) as

Spontaneous Fission Previously Observed in a Mercury Source

PREVIOUSLY1, we have presented evidence for the possible existence of a superheavy element with atomic number 112. The principal evidence for the possible existence of this element was based on the

Experiments related to Possible Production of Superheavy Elements by Proton Irradiation

MARINOV et al. have reported results which led them to believe that they might have found element 112, which they took to be a mercury homologue, produced by secondary reactions occurring in the

Spontaneous fission and alpha-decay properties of neutron deficient isotopes 257−253104 and 258106

Spontaneous fission and α-decay of253−257104 and 258106 were investigated in irradiations of 204,206,208Pb with 50Ti and 209Bi with 51V, respectively. New spontaneous fission activities were

Search for Superheavy Elements and Actinides Produced by Secondary Reactions in a Tungsten Target

WE have presented evidence1 for the possible existence of a superheavy element with atomic number 112. This evidence came principally from the observation of spontaneous fission activity in a mercury

Search for Superheavy Elements in Natural and Proton-irradiated Materials

WE have used an improved method of measuring low levels of spontaneous fission to establish limits for postulated super-heavy elements in natural materials. The apparatus has also been used to give

Isomeric states in the second well of the potential and long-lived superheavy elements
