    Following earlier reports that the claims for discovery of these elements have been fulfilled the discoverers have been invited to propose names and the following are now disclosed for public review:

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

    The IUPAC Inorganic Chemistry Division has reviewed and considered these proposals and recommends these for acceptance. A five-month public review is now set, expiring 8 November 2016, prior to the formal approval by the IUPAC Council.
