Happy Mendeleev Day

To commemorate IUPAC's announcement that Period 7 of the Periodic Table of Elements is finally complete, thanks to the 'discovery' of four elements 113, 115, 117 and 118, the Bipolar Chemist will drink coffee from this mug for 4 days.

Mendeleev says welcome to ununtrium (Uut), ununpentium (Uup), ununseptium (Uus) and ununoctium (Uuo).
