The Evolving Periodic Table ACS Program-in-a-Box

Event Description:

150 years ago, Dmitri Mendeleev first presented his periodic system to the Russian Chemical Society, forever shaping the way we look at elements. His system, which organized the elements based on atomic weight, valence, and measurable properties, laid the foundation for today's Periodic Table. In honour of this, The United Nations has declared 2019 to be the International Year of the Periodic Table.

Come to learn what the conflicting proposals from around the world were for, how the elements should be organized, why our current system rose to the top, how the most recent, superheavy elements discovered, and if the Periodic Table has any more room to grow.
