The Periodic Table

Its Story and Its Significance

Eric R. Scerri

  • The first comprehensive book on the evolution and significance of the periodic table, the central icon of chemistry, since the publication of Van Spronsen's classic book of 1969 which has been out of print for many years.
  • Considers the concepts and ideas underlying the periodic table and its relation to quantum physics, something that was not provided in Van Spronsen.
