Did you know?

2019 is the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, marking 150 years since Dimitri Mendeleev ordered the elements into a table. Of course, the table and our understanding of chemical periodicity has evolved in the intervening time. 

At first glance, the system of chemical elements published by Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869 bears little resemblance to the modern periodic table. But by listing elements in columns, and lining up the columns to place elements that have similar properties along the same row, he laid the foundations for the iconic arrangement of elements that we know today. To recognize the 150th anniversary of Mendeleev’s achievement, the United Nations declared 2019 to be the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (although the modern version was conceived in the 1940's). 

As an educational tool and a research aid, the table is often found adorning the walls of classrooms or the inside covers of chemistry textbooks. At a fundamental level, it is simply a reference work that can provide, for example, the atomic weight of sulfur or the less-than-obvious symbol for an element that might have slipped the mind: see if you can remember the symbol for antimony, for example, or tungsten. But delve a little more deeply into its history and development, as well as the people and places it immortalizes, and the periodic table tells some fascinating stories of how science has become inextricably linked with society over the past 150 years.
