The answer is that the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) does this, and the process involved is described within their 1991 guidelines.  The last time elements were named and accepted accepted was flerovium (element 114) and livermorium (element 116), both named on 31 May 2012, and […]
