Let’s Begin…

The team at periodicvideos has created a TED-Ed Lesson for every element of the periodic table. Element 116 has been given the name livermorium - but it could easily have been named after Nottingham where the periodicvideos are made!

Ununhexium (Uuh) was the temporary IUPAC systematic name for element 116, but historically it is known as eka-polonium following Mendeleev’s way of naming predicted elements.
