periodic table

Element 112 joins the periodic table

Update: The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry has confirmed the name "Copernicium" for element 112 and given it the symbol Cn. The first choice for the chemical symbol, "Cp", apparently had other scientific meanings.

IN THE next few weeks, a new name will appear in the periodic table when the element with atomic number 112 receives a new name - sealing its place in the family of chemical elements.
