Ununtrium (Listeni /nˈntri.əm/ oon-OON-tree-əm)[1] is the temporary name of a synthetic element with the temporary symbol Uut and atomic number 113.

It is placed as the heaviest member of the group 13 (IIIA) elements although a sufficiently stable isotope is not known at this time that would allow chemical experiments to confirm its position. It was first detected in 2003 in the decay of ununpentium and was synthesized directly in 2004. Only fourteen atoms of ununtrium have been observed to date. The longest-lived isotope known is 286Uut with a half-life of ~20 s, allowing first chemical experiments to study its chemistry.
