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.

  • Superheroes, foods and apps bring a modern twist to the periodic table

    Many students, especially non-science majors, dread chemistry. The first lesson in an introductory chemistry course typically deals with how to interpret the periodic table of elements, but its complexity can be overwhelming to students with little or no previous exposure. Now, researchers reporting more

  • Topology Gets Magnetic: The New Wave Of Topological Magnetic Materials

    The electronic structure of nonmagnetic crystals can be classified by complete theories of band topology, reminiscent of a “topological periodic table.” However, such a classification for magnetic materials has so far been elusive, and hence very few magnetic topological materials have been discover more

  • 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

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

Timeline of the Elements

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
