Name Origin: Named in honor of Lawrence Livermore National Lab and Livermore, CA, the site of numerous element discoveries.
Atomic Number: 116
Element Classification: Metal
Phase: probably solid
Discovery: In December, 2000 the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna, Russia) described the discovery earlier in 2000 of the decay of the isotope Uuh-292, which was produced in the reaction of Cm-248 with Ca-48. Uuh-292 has a half-life of ~18 milliseconds and decayed into Uuq-288.
Electronic Configuration: [Rn] 5f14 6d10 7s2 7p4 (based on polonium)
