International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) have confirmed the names of elements 113, 115, 117, and 118 as:

  • Nihonium and symbol Nh, for element 113
  • Moscovium and symbol Mc, for element 115
  • Tennessine and symbol Ts, for element 117
  • Oganesson and symbol Og, for element 118

This followed a 5-month period of public review after which the names earlier proposed by the discoverers were approved by IUPAC.
