Important changes to standard atomic weights

January 4th, 2011

In the biennial review of atomic weights, M. E. Wieser and T. B Coplen have presented a new analysis which results in changes for the standard atomic weights of 11 elements. It has beenn shown that the many atomic weights are not constants of nature but depend on the physical, chemical and nuclear history of the material. The new atomc weights have been changed to reflect this phenomena.
