History

The name ununseptium is used as a placeholder, as in scientific articles about the search for element 117. Transuranic elements (those beyond uranium) are, except for microscopic quantities, always artificially produced, and usually end up being named for a scientist or the location of a laboratory that does work in atomic physics (see systematic element name for more information). For the World of Warcraft ex-NPC, see Captain Placeholder. ... In chemistry, transuranium elements (also known as transuranic elements) are the chemical elements with atomic numbers greater than 92, the atomic number of Uranium. ... General Name, Symbol, Number uranium, U, 92 Chemical series actinides Group, Period, Block n/a, 7, f Appearance silvery gray metallic; corrodes to a spalling black oxide coat in air Atomic mass 238. ... In chemistry, heavy transuranic elements receive a permanent trivial name and symbol only after their synthesis has been confirmed. ...


Ununseptium has not yet been discovered. Its chemical properties are likely to differ significantly from the lighter halogens.[1] The halogens or halogen elements are a series of nonmetal elements from Group 17 (old-style: VII or VIIA; Group 7 IUPAC Style) of the periodic table, comprising fluorine, F, chlorine, Cl, bromine, Br, iodine, I, and astatine, At. ...

Ununseptium (77 words)
Ununseptium is the temporary name of an undiscovered chemical element in the periodic table that has the temporary symbol Uus and has the atomic number 117.
The name Ununseptium is used as a placeholder, such as in scientific articles about the search for Element 117; it is a Latinate way of saying "one-one-seven-ium" ("ium" being a standard ending for element names).
Such transuranic elements are always artificially produced, and usually end up being named for a scientist.
