    • Abstract


      Controversy surrounds the isolation and stability of the future transactinoid elements (after oganesson) in the periodic table. A single conclusion has not yet been drawn for the highest possible atomic number, though there are several theoretical as well as experimental results regarding this. In this article, the scientific backgrounds of those upcoming super-heavy elements (SHE) and their proposed electronic characters are briefly described.
