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.

  • Pushing the boundaries of chemistry: Properties of heaviest element studied so far measured

    An international research team has succeeded in gaining new insights into the chemical properties of the superheavy element flerovium — element 114 — at the accelerator facilities of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt. The measurements show that flerovium is the most vola more

  • Space determines the arrangement

    In the 1860s, the chemists, Lothar Meyer and Dmitri Mendeleev, independently presented the first periodic system. Since then, the well-known tabular arrangement of the elements has been the guiding principle of chemistry. A team of researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sci more

  • 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

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

The Periodic Table of Rejected Element Names

For elements discovered more recently, a catalogue of names have been seriously and not-so-seriously suggested before the official names were confirmed. Past elements, too, have been subject to naming variations, be it due to simultaneous discoveries, language differences, or scientific squabbles ov more

The Periodic Table of Data

Here’s a periodic table that’s crammed with data. It includes the melting point, boiling point, density, electronegativity, radius, and first ionisation energy of each element in the table. It’s also colour-coded to show how these properties vary from element to element. more
