Element 112

_45898567_a150192-periodic_table_of_elements-splA new element will soon be added to the periodic table. Today came the announcement that a team of German scientists have been credited with the discovery of element 112. This comes more than a decade after their experiments first produced a single atom of the “super-heavy” element.

“The team, led by Sigurd Hofmann at the Centre for Heavy Ion Research, must propose a name for their find, before it can be formally added to the table.

Scientists continue the race to discover more super-heavy elements.

Professor Hofmann began his quest to add to the periodic table in 1976.”
