Name a chemical and its origin or where it comes from?

Ununhexium, symbol Uuh, chemical element with atomic number 116. Ununhexium has never been found in nature but can be produced in the laboratory by nuclear fusion. They produced ununhexium by using a particle accelerator to accelerate atoms of calcium to a very high velocity and then smashing them into atoms of curium. In a very small percentage of these collisions, an atom of calcium combines with an atom of curium to form an isotope of ununhexium called ununhexium-292. Ununhexium-292 contains 116 protons and 176 neutrons. Like most of the other known atoms with large numbers of particles packed into their nuclei, ununhexium-292 breaks down very quickly, taking an average of only about 76 milliseconds to decay. Scientists have been unable to examine ununhexium’s chemical properties because of the limited amount of ununhexium-292 that has been produced and its short life span. Scientists suspect, however, that ununhexium’s properties will turn out to resemble those of the naturally occurring element polonium. Ununhexium belongs to Group 16, a column of the periodic table that also contains polonium.

I confess I may not have read every word of this long and very interesting post but I  could not find any mention of the important Isotopes of Hydrogen ie Deuterium and tritium that are important in nuclear research and possible fusion reactors

I am afraid that I have not done any research on deuterium and/or tritium. Of course, that information won't be too hard to find :)

DiscoverDave,
Just for the record, it doesn't look like I will have any kids of my own for you to save, but I do earn my crusts by keeping adults (and occasionally kids) alive.
Also, if you take the trouble to look, you might see that I a fair amount of rebutting the dross that some people post.
None of that seems to have any relevance to the issue.
I'm sure that your posts would ahve been better received and more widely read in an apropriate part of the site. YOu might want to try that next time.
