      The "Handbook of Chemistry and Physics" is the "bible" for that info.

        But does require a bank loan to buy.

          Admittedly mine is a 62 edition but wasn't that expensive when I got it. :-)

              Just a guess, but I suspect that it lists nothing discovered after 1962...

                Unobtainium, Adamantium, and the most common element in industry bull****ium are note ably absent, however it's good to hold a desk Down

                  Those "elements" that last only in the sub nanoseconds as far as I'm concerned don't have much (any)
                  use to the machinists, either home or professional. :-)

                    I'm pretty sure it's one of those elements that keeps derailing my train of thought. I'm pretty sure it's not Alz.. Als.. All's well that ends well!

                        It's also lacking the guy with the freaky hair-do --- half caught between Albert E. and big bird...

                          I found the video about Copernicium (112) rather interesting, being the last of the traditionally named (and synthesized) elements. Places have been reserved for elements up to 118 with three-letter temporary names. Copernicium was to have the abbreviation Cp but that had at some point in time been used for Cassiopium (71) which is now called Lutetium.

                          There was a "game" on the dog forum I frequent, asking members to name as many dog breeds as possible in 20 minutes. I came up with about 80, I think, but there are probably hundreds, and I was far from winning. But I proposed that people name as many elements as they could, with extra credit for the abbreviation, and most did not even try. I think I got about 60.

                            Does that 1962 issue of "Handbook of Chemistry and Physics" include the newest elements?

                            My favorite is
                            WTF:
                            Common name: The element of surprise
                            States: Confused
                            Isotopes: HUH?

                            At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.

                              Frequent your local library book sales. I went to ours today and they had the 58th and 59th editions for $2 apiece.
