We are approaching the 150th anniversary of Mendeleev’s formulation of the Periodic Table. We will explore the underlying beauty of the Table from its early history, to how and why it ‘works’, and how it was able to predict undiscovered elements. The concepts will be brought to life with accompanying demonstrations. Taught in the Department of Chemistry (1.5km, c.20 mins walk).
