Ununhexium - IUPAC and the
Modern Standardised Periodic Table
The Standardised Periodic Table in use today was agreed by the
International Union of Pure Applied Chemistry, IUPAC, in 1985 and
now recognises more periods and elements than Dimitri
Mendeleev knew in his day in his day but still all fitting into his concept of
the "Periodic Table" in which
Ununhexium is just one element
that can be found.
