The Periodic Table

Its Story and Its Significance

Second Edition

Eric Scerri

  • Offers a history of the elements and the creation of the periodic table
  • Provides readers with a comprehensive approach to the synthesis of artificial or superheavy elements and whether or not an optimal periodic system exists
  • Traces the evolution and development of the periodic table, from Mendeleev's 1869 first published table and onto the modern understanding provided by physics

New to this Edition:

  • Features additional chapters on topics spanning the last seven infra-uranium elements, synthetic elements, and alternative forms of the periodic table
  • Updated chapters on the extent to which quantum mechanics explains the periodic table
