Americium, berkelium and livermorium were named after places that had been named for them. Livermorium is a synthetic chemical compound with symbol LV. Livermorium, artificially produced transuranium element of atomic number 116. The Lawrence Livermore team wanted the name livermorium (Lv), which recognizes Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Livermore, California, where it is located. The IUPAC approved the name livermorium on May 23, 2012. This happened more than ten years after the discovery of this element. The city is named, in turn, for American rancher Robert Livermore, so he indirectly got an element named after him. The element Livermorium (element 116, named after Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory) was created in 2000. Element Individual(s) Z Name … The team at Dubna have indicated plans to synthesize livermorium using the reaction between plutonium-244 and titanium-50. On June 24, 2013 Mayor John Marchand dedicated Livermorium Plaza and announced Livermorium Day as May 30th. Livermorium – Named for the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Lutetium – Named for Lutecia, an ancient name for Paris Magnesium – Named … The city in turn is named after the American rancher Robert Livermore, a naturalized Mexican citizen of English birth. The name, livermorium (whose atomic symbol is Lv) was chosen in honor of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the city of Livermore, California. Currently, there are only two cities in the United States with elements named after them, Berkeley with element 97 (Bk), and now Livermore! In June 2011, the IUPAC officially accepted the livermorium as the heaviest so far. It has no uses 3. So that seems quite pointless. Livermorium’s longest-lived isotope has a half-life of 60 milliseconds. The cities of Berkeley, California and Livermore, California are the locations of the University of California Radiation Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, respectively. Though it’s named after an American laboratory, Livermorium was first created in Dubna, Russia. Till now, it is only developed in the laboratory and has not been observed in nature. Livermorium is named after the Lawrence Livermore National Lab, California, which worked on its discovery. In 2000 it was announced that atoms of livermorium were produced when curium-248 was fused with calcium-48. It is to be called Livermorium (symbol Lv) in honour of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California, home of the US end of the collaborative team and a stalwart of nuclear and heavy-element research. An element can only be named after a property, a mythical creature, a location, a scientist or a mineral. LV is named after Lawrence Livermorium National laboratory. Current and future experiments Edit. In the modern era of discovery, all of the elements have been named after places or scientists. The resulting atoms of livermorium had an atomic weight of 292 and decayed through the emission of an alpha particle into flerovium. Named after Lawrence Livermore National Lab, the element livermorium, atomic number 116, is a synthetic super heavy element discovered as part of a collaboration between Livermore Lab and the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions in Russia. ... And to have an element named after you need to be dead. It has an atomic weight of 116 and is radioactive.
