Recommendation for the Naming of Element of
Atomic Number 110
Prepared for publication by J. Corish and G. M. Rosenblatt
A joint IUPAC-IUPAP Working Party (JWP) has confirmed
the discovery of element number 110 and this by the collaboration
of Hofmann et al. from the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung
mbH (GSI) in Darmstadt, Germany. In accord with IUPAC procedures,
the discoverers have proposed a name and symbol for the element. The
Inorganic Chemistry Division Committee now recommends this proposal
for acceptance. The proposed name is darmstadtium with symbol
Ds. This proposal lies within the long established tradition
of naming an element after the place of its discovery.
