FLNR  DISCOVERY of Element 105 FlerovLab

Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions, JINR, Dubna, Moscow region, Russia

According to IUPAC-IUPAP TWG Conclusion Independent work reported in 1970 from Berkeley (70Gh02) and from Dubna (71Dr01) was essentially contemporaneous and equally convincing. Credit for the discovery should be shared.

At the session of the General Assembly of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), held in Geneva from 22-30 August, 1997 the Council of IUPAC adopted final recommendations for the names of transfermium elements. The outstanding achievements in the field of synthesis of superheavy elements of the international staff of scientists, engineers and workers of the Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions have been recognized by naming Element 105 of the Mendeleev Periodic Table as DUBNIUM.
