23 48 th IUPAC COUNCIL MEETING AGENDA 11. [15.10] Adoption of Recommendations on Nomenclature and Symbols [Mr. Humphris] [For Information and Decision; voting by show of hands] Motion: Council formally adopts the Recommendations approved by the Interdivisional Committee on Terminology, Nomenclature and Symbols (ICTNS) and published, or scheduled to be published, in Pure and Applied Chemistry from August 2013 through July [15.15] Validation and Naming of New Elements 113, 115, 117, 118 [Prof Corish] [For Information] The IUPAC/IUPAP Joint Working Party charged with the task of examining claims for the discoveries of these four elements to establish whether they fulfil the necessary criteria and assigning priorities to the successful laboratories have produced two draft IUPAC Technical Reports that have been sent to Pure and Applied Chemistry for review and publication. The first of these reports is entitled Discovery of the elements with atomic numbers Z = 113, 115 and 117. The second is entitled Discovery of the element with atomic number Z = 118 completing the 7 th row of the Periodic Table. In accordance with usual practice the draft reports were sent to the relevant laboratories to be checked for technical accuracy. They are also currently undergoing expert review prior to acceptance for publication. As soon as these are published and then accepted by the Executive Committees of IUPAC and IUPAP Professor Jan Reedijk, President of the IUPAC Inorganic Chemistry Division (Division II), can begin the second phase of the process to name new elements by inviting the laboratories to which priorities have been assigned to propose names and symbols for those elements deemed to have been discovered. These proposed names and symbols are then considered by the Division II Committee before being sent for expert and public review as provisional recommendations. After the successful completion of all these reviews, approval of the recommendations of the new names and symbols is sought from Council. As the second phase of the process is likely to begin shortly after the Council meeting at Busan the Council will be asked to delegate the authority to the Bureau to approve any provisionally recommended names and symbols that have completed the full examination process. Any interim updates of this position will be communicated to the Council Meeting. [15:25-15:50 Refreshment Break] FINAL 6 17 July 2015
