A joint IUPAC/IUPAP Working Party (JWP) has confirmed the discovery of the element with atomic number 112. In accord with IUPAC procedures, the discoverers proposed a name, copernicium, and symbol, Cn, for the element. The IUPAC Inorganic Chemistry Division Committee recommended this proposal for acceptance, and it has now been approved by the IUPAC Bureau as delegated to act by the IUPAC Council meeting on 12 August 2007.
