The Periodic Table: A Field Guide to the Elements by Paul ParsonsAs one of the most recognizable images in science, the periodic table is ingrained in our culture. First drawn up in 1869 by Dmitri Mendeleev, its 118 elements make up not only everything on our planet but also everything in the entire universe.
The Periodic Table looks at the fascinating story and surprising uses of each of those elements, whether solid, liquid or gas. From the little-known uses of gold in medicine to the development of the hydrogen bomb, each entry is accompanied by technical data (category, atomic number, weight, boiling point) presented in easy-to-read headers, and a colour-coding system that helps the reader to navigate through the different groups of elements.
A remarkable display of thought-provoking science and beautiful photography, this guide will allow the reader to discover the world afresh.

Elements as Building Blocks
There will soon be four new names on the periodic table after scientists decided to use recently discovered elements to pay tribute to Japan, Moscow, Tennessee and a Russian scientist. The names moscovium, nihonium, tennessine and oganesson were recommended on Wednesday by an international scientific group. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry , which rules on chemical element names, presented for public review its proposal based on the names submitted by the element discoverers. The four elements, currently known by the Latin for their atomic numbers — ununtrium , ununpentium , ununseptium and ununoctium — completed the seventh row of the periodic table when the chemistry organisation verified their discoveries at the end of December. Tennessee is the second US state after California to be recognised with an element.

He was able to use his periodic table to predict Atomic radius electron affinity energy levels family full ionization energy Mendeleev metalloids modern periodic law Moseley period properties similar valence electrons of the missing elements. Atomic radius electron affinity energy levels family full ionization energy Mendeleev metalloids modern periodic law Moseley period properties similar valence electrons discovered that each element has a unique atomic number and arranged the elements in order of increasing atomic number. The Atomic radius electron affinity energy levels family full ionization energy Mendeleev metalloids modern periodic law Moseley period properties similar valence electrons states that the properties of the elements repeat when arranged by increasing atomic number.
