Russian and American scientists have obtained a new element of the Mendeleyev periodical table
Russian and American scientists have obtained a new, 118th superheavy element of the Mendeleyev periodical table. A joint statement issued by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, California, and Russia’s Dubna Institute of Nuclear Research on Monday said that experiments to synthesise the 118th element were carried out at the Dubna accelerator in the period from February to June 2005. The studies have shown that the nucleus of the new element was produced by “bombardment” of a Californium target with calcium ions. The 118th element is expected to be take a place in the very end of the Mendeleyev table. When preparations for the experiments began a few years ago, Russian scientists Russia scientists proposed naming the future element Moscovium, but the decision is up to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. The Physical Review C journal published by the American Physical Society has reported the achievement in October.
