Flerovium

Flerovium is a superheavy artificial chemical element with symbol Fl and atomic number 114. It is an extremely radioactive synthetic element.
Flerovium was first synthesized in December 1998 by a team of scientists at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, Russia.

In 2011, IUPAC evaluated the Dubna team experiments of 1999–2007. They found the early data inconclusive, but accepted the results of 2004–2007 as flerovium, and the element was officially recognized as having been discovered.
   IUPAC Technical Report dated  01.06.2011.

 

On 23 May 2012, the IUPAC approved the name flerovium, symbol Fl for the element 114.
Element 114 is named flerovium and element 116 is named livermorium
