All that comes to my mind is darmstadtium, but that is kind of a new thing. Let's finish with some clues. Would you give us a couple that British solvers wouldn't understand? Here is one with an Australian abbreviation ... Service provided by royal household, largely with ill feeling (7). The solution is ...

Darmstadtium, with the chemical symbol Ds, is a synthetic, radioactive element about which we are still learning. The half-lives of nine isotopes of darmstadtium are known and even the most stable of these has a half-life of about 20 seconds, after which it decays. What's in a name? It was mentioned earlier ...
Word origin: Darmstadtium is named for the city of Darmstadt, Germany, where it was discovered. The name was confirmed by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry in 2003. Discovery: On Nov. 9, 1994, element 110 was discovered by the Gesellschaft fur Schwerionenforschung team led by ...
Darmstadtium is highly unstable and radioactive. Eight isotopes have been observed so far, most of which have half-lives ranging between seconds and milliseconds. This element decays by releasing a high-energy helium nucleus (alpha decay), although some isotopes will sometimes decay by giving rise ...
The periodic table of elements just got a bit heftier today (Nov. 4), as the names of three new elements were approved by the General Assembly of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics. Elements 110, 111 and 112 have been named darmstadtium (Ds), roentgenium (Rg) and copernicium (Cn) ...
