The Periodic Table of Elements is a specific table for organizing the various elements found, yet to be found, created, and yet to be created in the known universe. Currently, there are over 115 known chemical elements; 117 known-to-exist to be exact. Many scientists have even predicted more elements where missing elements should be occupying the periodic table, such as the undiscovered Unonseptium, chemical element 117.


Dmitri Mendeleev was a Russian chemist and inventor, born on February 8, 1834, who was widely credited for the created and composure of the world's first Periodic Table of Elements in 1869. Mendeleev supposedly tried to classify the known elements of the time according to their chemical properties. Upon completion, he noticed that they all shared odd relationships to one another; however, the excess of spaces in his table of sixty-three elements led to it being not generally accepted. Mendeleev did not give up despite this unfortunate circumstance; he theorized that the empty spaces must be undiscovered elements.

-Nil- Through -En-: The Future Of Elemental Naming

A total of seven recently discovered (and one hypothysized) elements have been given temporary IUPAC chemical element names. These increase with numerical prefixes and include the chemical elements Unonbium (Uub: 112), Unontrium (Uut: 113), Unonquadium (Uuq: 114), Unonpentium (Uup: 115), Unonhexium (Uuh: 116) Unonseptium [Uus: 117 (Undiscovered)], and Unonoctium (Uuo: 118). This name process uses these ten numerical prefixes:

  • Zero: nil
  • One: un
  • Two: bi
  • Three: tri
  • Four: quad
  • Five: pent
  • Six: hex
  • Seven: sept
  • Eight: oct
  • Nine: en

With this naming scheme, any element can be named without actual naming with a person who discovered it or place it was discovered at.

  • Element 119: Unonennium
  • Element 236: Bitrihexium
  • Element 457: Quapentiseptium
  • Element 801: Octonilunium
  • Element 999: Enenenium

Any future element that is discovered or manufactured by any means will be able to be named with this systematic scheme of chemical elements. XD

Number of Future Elements

By the year 2100, many elements will have been found and created in laboratories. It is estimated through extrapolation that humanity will have synthesised approximately one hundred additional elements, making the list of known elements come up to roughly two hundred to 210 chemical elements.
