Scientists propose a brand new periodic table

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The periodic table of the elements, principally created by the Russian chemist, Dmitry Mendeleev (1834-1907), celebrated its 150th anniversary last year. It would be hard to overstate its importance as an organising principle in chemistry – all budding chemists become familiar with it from the earliest stages of their education.

Given the table's importance, one might be forgiven for thinking that the ordering of the elements were no longer subject to debate. However, two scientists in Moscow, Russia, have recently published a proposal for a new order.

Sweet.  It was remarkable for  Mendeleev to  develop the grid we are familiar with from a linear list of elements.  It has been so useful.
