The Element Ununpentium


"The Atom"

The Ununpentium Element
Elements can be classified based on their physical states (States of Matter) e.g. gas, solid or liquid. This element is a solid. This element is a radioactive a synthetic super-heavy element and is artificially produced.

Ununpentium is a temporary name taken from Latin meaning one-one-five. It is not found free in the environment as it is a synthetic element. The Atomic Number of this element is 115 and the Element Symbol is Uup.

History and Discovery of the Ununpentium Element
The element was discovered in 2003 by scientists working at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna, Russia together with scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

The scientists produced Ununpentium using atoms of americium-243 which were bombarded with ions of calcium-48 using a device called a cyclotron which is a research instrument with which several new elements have been first produced. This produced one atom of ununpentium. Element 115, Ununpentium - will probably be a basic metal. Nearly 75% of all the elements in the Periodic Table are classified as metals which are detailed in the List of Metals.

Ununpentium currently has no uses outside of basic scientific research.

Ununpentium - IUPAC and the Modern Standardised Periodic Table
The Standardised Periodic Table in use today was agreed by the International Union of Pure Applied Chemistry, IUPAC, in 1985 and now recognises more periods and elements than Dimitri Mendeleev knew in his day but still all fitting into his concept of  the "Periodic Table" in which Ununpentium is just one element that can be found.
