New Arrivals: Periodic Table Gains Four New Elements

Periodic Table The seventh row of the periodic table is finally complete! As a company that heavily relies on elements in the periodic table, we are thrilled to hear about the four additions. Elements 113, 115, 117 and 118 have been recognized by IUPAC – the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry – a US-based authority on chemistry. These elements were created in a lab, not found in nature. And, it will be sometime before we find them outside the lab as they decay extremely fast. For example, element 113 exists for less than a thousandth of a second. The new elements are in the process of acquiring symbols and being named.

So what goes into naming an element?

Per the IUPAC, new elements can be named after a mineral, place, property, scientist, or – our favorite – a mythological concept. After names are submitted by those who discovered the elements, they are checked by the Inorganic Chemistry Division of IUPAC for consistency, translatability into other languages and possible prior historic use. The proposed names are made public for five months before the IUPAC makes its final decision. The process of discovering and naming elements makes you appreciate the ones found in everyday applications, such as steel, chrome and carbon. At CCTY, we are thankful for the following elements that are in our bushing product line:

  • Iron, Fe, Atomic number 26
  • Manganese, Mn, 12
  • Carbon, C, 6
  • Sulfur, S, 16
  • Phosphorous, P, 15
  • Copper, Cu, 29
  • Zinc, Zn, 30
  • Fluorine, F, 9
  • Molybdenum, Mo, 42
  • Hydrogen, H, 1
  • Nitrogen, N, 7
  • Oxygen, O, 8
