All your periodic tables are out of date

Posted by Nick

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) recently decided that element 112, which until now has been referred to as ununbium, will now be called Copernicium and use the abbreviation Cn.  After being officially recognized by IUPAC as an element last year, copernicum had used the abbreviation Uub.  The most important consequence of this, of course, is that all periodic tables in the world must be replaced immediately.
