The Periodic Table is the iconic symbol of Chemistry

A collection of 118 distinctive elements each with the fingerprint of the atomic number.

When an unknown Russian, Mendeleev compiled the modern Periodic Table, leaving gaps where he thought yet to be undiscovered elements would fit. He had no idea that his creation would render him immortal.

Each element is represented by a unique symbol. The symbols used have not only been important in the history and development of the Periodic Table but also convey the truly international nature of Chemistry. Year 9 students have been celebrating the wonder of the Periodic Table with their presentation on an element of their choice. From the many allotropes of Carbon to the toxic nature of Arsenic.
