Three new elements named : darmstadtium, roentgenium, and copernicium, in New York times, Nov. 4, 2011, viewed online Sept. 13, 2012(Three newly discovered elements were given names on Friday by the General Assembly of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics at a meeting in London; Roentgenium, or Rg, with 111 protons, named after the discoverer of X-rays Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen; None of these elements occur in nature, or even last very long once created. They were all made in Darmstadt, Germany, at the Society for Heavy Ion Research Laboratory (Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung) by bombarding heavy nuclei with beams of other atom)
    • found: Welsh, J. 3 new heavy elements named: darmstadtium, roentgenium, copernicium, via Live science website, 4 Nov. 2011, viewed Sept. 13, 2012(The names of three new elements were approved on November 4 by the General Assembly of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics. Elements 110, 111 and 112 have been named darmstadtium (Ds), roentgenium (Rg) and copernicium (Cn); called "super heavy," or transuranium, elements; Element number 111, officially renamed roentgenium by the General Assembly, was originally discovered in 1994 when a team at GSI created three atoms of the element, about a month after their discovery of darmstadtium, on Dec. 8; its temporary name was unununium)
    • found: Wikipedia, Sept. 13, 2012(Roentgenium is a synthetic radioactive chemical element with the symbol Rg and atomic number 111. It is placed as the heaviest member of the group 11 (IB) elements, although a sufficiently stable isotope has not yet been produced in a sufficient amount that would confirm this position as a heavier homologue of gold. Roentgenium was first observed in 1994 and several isotopes have been synthesized since its discovery. The name roentgenium (Rg) was accepted by IUPAC on Nov. 1, 2004 and approved by IUPAP on November 4, 2011. Previously, the element was known under the temporary IUPAC systematic element name unununium with symbol Uuu. Element category: unknown, but probably a transition metal)
