How many Elements are on the Periodic Table?

The modern periodic table (an updated version). All the elements up to element #118 have been given a real name.
Based on IUPAC standards, there are currently 118 elements on the periodic table. This is after four new elements were added in July of 2016. Scientists have now begun trying to find elements 119, 120 and 121. The discovered elements are, in order of atomic number:

The Origins of the Periodic Table:
The idea that all matter is made from a fundamental particle is a very old one. Elements such as gold, mercury, tin and lead were known for millennia although they weren’t always seen as such. The first scientific discovery of an element occurred in 1649 when Hennig Brand discovered Phosphorus. Many other scientists them jumped in and proved that certain elements existed. Once there were more than 60 elements, Russian Chemist Dmitri Mendeleev became of the first to develop a modern periodic based on the known trends of his day. Those fundamental trends are still those that are used today when organizing the modern periodic table. IUPAC was founded in 1919 to standardize the discovery of elements and provide universal names to them.
