Element 125 -Unbipentium; Ubp

Element 125 is included in the new group of orbitals. Contrary to the other elements, element 125 belongs to the new g-block elements. Being in the new block elements, there will be no assurance of the physical and chemical properties of the said element. 

This element is classified in the group of super actinides (element 119-153). 

Element 125 is expected to behave similarly to Neptunium and Promethium which are apparently radioactive. There are attempts in making the element but there are still no successes in doing so. If ever created, element 125 will be have a very short half-life, meaning it will decay in short span of time.
