Dear Sir or Madam,
In the middle of the 19th century, two chemists worked on a categorisation of the chemical elements: Lothar Meyer and Dmitri Mendelejew arranged the elements according to their atomic mass and were thus able to make predictions about properties. For the year of the periodic table we present you the suitable infographics:
