International year of the periodic table

The periodic table went through its entirety in 2016. The elements of the atomic numbers up to 118 have been discovered or produced. Initially used for the prediction of elements, today it is impossible to imagine a laboratory without it. The fathers of the proper rendering of the known elements Dmitri I. Mendeleev and J. Lothar Meyer brought joy and suffering to generations of prospective scientists with their listing of the known elements. This year is under the badge of this discovery.

  • Nitrogen – an exception in the periodic system?

    In the periodic table of elements there is one golden rule for carbon, oxygen, and other light elements. Under high pressures they have similar structures to heavier elements in the same group of elements. Only nitrogen always seemed unwilling to toe the line. However, high-pressure researchers of t more

  • A special elemental magic

    A staple in every science classroom is the periodic table of elements, and for many it is their first introduction to the vast mysteries of the natural world. Now physicists from Kyoto University have unveiled a new table that provides a different perspective on the building blocks of the universe. more

  • Search for new superconducting hydrides is going to get easier

    The search for coveted high-temperature superconductors is going to get easier with a new 'law within a law' discovered by Skoltech and MIPT researchers and their colleagues, who figured out a link between an element's position in the Periodic Table and its potential to form a high-temperature super more

The Compound Interest Periodic Table of Data – New Elements Update!

With four new element names officially confirmed last week, it’s past time the Compound Interest Periodic Table of Data was updated to include them! Here’s the updated table with nihonium, moscovium, tennessine and oganesson in their rightful places; the version above has a key denoting the differen more

This graphic looks at the discovery dates of the elements, as well as the countries in which they were discovered, and plots them all on a timeline to give some idea of the order of discovery. more

The Complete Periodic Table of Elements

The periodic table has actually only just been ‘completed’ in the past year. Four new elements had their discoveries and names confirmed in 2016, and replaced the last few placeholder positions in the table. I say ‘completed’ because scientists are still trying to create elements beyond element 118, more
