Title: New Periodic Table
Post by: movies on July 20, 2005, 04:02:12 PM
Some guy made a new periodic table.  I'm not exactly sure why or how it is better than the current one though.

Circular and spiral periodic tables have been done before.  While they're fun to look at and can display relations between the elements visually, they're not useful overall because no one reads in a spiral or circle.  I like having my information arranged in a convenient left-to-right grid.

I have a copy of the book that has these pictures in it.  It doesn't have the table formatted as you showed (with pictures in each square), rather the elements are spread over several pages with the pictures.  The book is part of the LIFE Science Library series.

Reviews
"Eric Scerri is something of a rara avis. Scerri's philosophical orientation enriches the text by raising a number of thought-provoking issues...The book under review here is clearly and engaging written and meticulously researched with 42 pages of notes."-- Journal of Chemical Education

"The quality is not merely skin deep, there is a real scholarship inside...I would have been proud to have written this book rather than just contributing one image."-- Education in Chemistry

''This is undoublty a book that every practising chemist and chemistry educator should read because of it's far-reaching implications for understanding the nature of the periodic law and the challenges it presents to contemporary portrayals of the Periodic Table."-- Newsletter of International History, Philosophy and Science Teaching Group

"The Perodic Table:Its Story and its Significance should be of great interest and value to chemists and particularly to those chemists who teach about what makes up us, our world, and our science."-- Journal of Chemical Education

"Resembling a surreal checkerboard, the periodic table of elements has acquired a mythic significance in our time, as Ptolemy's spheres did in the Middle Ages. Yet the table did not fall from the sky. It has a very terrestrial history a complex and fascinating one. A century after the death of Mendeleev, the Russian with whom the periodic table is most famously associated, Scerri relates that history in his clear and absorbing account. Especially intriguing are his ruminations on a quasi-philosophical question, which is grist for the mills of reductionists and anti-reductionists alike: Can chemistry be reduced to quantum physics?."--San Fransico Chronicle

"It is an extermely rare occurrence to have the privilege of reviewing a book that is truly the difinitiev work in its field: The Periodic Table by Scerri is such a book."-- Rayner Canham

"The Periodic Table is one of the most iconic symbols in our culture. Every person interested in the physical world in which we live will want to read this book. It is also a masterful history of the people involved in the establishment of the periodic law of chemistry. The gradual growth in awareness of the regularities of the elements is the main theme of this work. It is already a classic in its first year in print! "      Gary D. Patterson (Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA) -

Post by: wayne54 on July 04, 2008, 04:35:40 AM
hey gang,
I have compiled the periodic table in tablefy, I think this is helpful for those who need quick reference on their properties.
for example: Periodic Table: Non-Metal-series
 (http://tablefy.com/compare/613/Periodic-Table,-Non-Metal-series)
what's cool about it is that you can grab any elements and compile them into 1 data sheet, ex: iron and hydrogen (http://tinyurl.com/5h5p68)

this is the list of the elements, I grouped them based on their elemental group Periodic table elements (http://tablefy.com/search/keyword/1/periodic)

I hope this will help you in your homework as I sure did enjoy making those tables :)~

Note: I leave the tables open for contribution, but please don't vandalize it as if it is a wikipedia page  ::)

Post by: Arkcon on January 02, 2009, 08:39:16 AM
I'd heard many such ideas, some quite strange -- that the "correct" way to draw the periodic table was a trapezoid, or a cube, or a spiral.  Sometimes people can get quite pushy, on this topic.  At any rate, once you've googled the topic enough, you'll see so many varied points of view, all at least marginally plausible, that you'll stop worrying about elemental periodicy.  Or at least I do, YMMV.

Title: Free Periodic Table Template
Post by: suzzy on September 11, 2009, 04:19:20 AM
Hi all,

I came across with a very useful periodic table recently, and thought you would find it useful in your studies as well.

You can download it here:

http://spreadsheetzone.com/templateview.aspx?i=290

This is actually like any other periodic chart, where atomic numbers, symbols and atomic weights of elements are listed as usual.
However, differently from other periodic charts, this chart offers additional information about any element you click on the table, such as its full name, field of usage, and some specific characteristics. I think it's really valuable and rare.

There is also a phases sheet where you can find the melting, boiling points and the size of the liquid ranges of elements you choose.
Note that the values are shown on a large graph, along with a smaller graph showing the liquid range of selected element.

This table is an Excel template, actually. So, I think you can easily associate it with other spreadsheets you’re already working with. There is a variety of options to use it in a more functional way. Hope you'll find it useful like me.

Title: Memorizing the periodic table
Post by: paulina7m on November 11, 2009, 02:35:27 AM

Is there an easy way to memorize all 117 elements? Yes, there is. You could make up a melody, and sing them. Melody is a great mnemonic device. This unique idea was used by Carleton University professor Bob Burk, to encourage students' interest in Chemistry. He would give extra marks to those students, who would memorize all 177 elements, and sing them in front of a 500+ class. Great idea, and very entertaining.

Post by: virtualperiodic on June 29, 2011, 03:10:58 AM
Would anyone be interested in this software/program that I made for a school project?

Right now it is unfinished, and is in Spanish, the final product would be in English and also in Spanish, with more features, better logo, etc

Here are some screenshots of the unfinished/alpha program:
(https://www.chemicalforums.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FTGvLY.png&hash=364342d6cd447cfeb93db387807ae83e)

In this picture you can see that if you hover your mouse over an element it gives you basic information.

(https://www.chemicalforums.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FDR7yC.png&hash=293030ffe60d50af856f80ed0e1be7ca)

And here if you click an element, it gives you full information, with many tabs such as "Basic info", "Properties",  "Electronic Configuration", "Pictures of element usage", etc

(https://www.chemicalforums.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FIa6kJ.png&hash=503666f43dcaa411325ee4c592b49d54)

Also here you can see the search tool where you can sort the elements by atomic number, or alphabetically, and search an element by name, symbol, atomic number, or approximate name (For example if you type "hydr", it asks you "Did you mean: 'hydrogen'")


It has many more features such as a practice game where it presents you with a element symbol and you need to type the name, it uses a database and the program asks you an element randomly, and another type of game where it gives you a grade from 1 to 10 (1/10, 7/10), that way you can study the names of elements.
If anyone shows interest I could enhance and completely finish all the program with many more features, and sell it to a reasonable price


Any comments, suggestions, or anything?

Post by: fledarmus on June 29, 2011, 08:20:48 AM
How far into it do you want to go? You haven't described the molecule for which you are giving melting and boiling points, for one thing. I'm assuming it's H2 for your hydrogen, but what happens when you get to sulfur?

If you are interested in adding functionality, it would be really cool to have things like atomic radius, ionic radii, electronegativity, emission spectra, known isotopes with stability information, route of decay, exact mass, and natural abundance, dipole and quadropole moments - and maybe even a wikipedia link  ;)

The "organic periodic table (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organometallic_chemistry#See_also)" (wiki) is one of my favorites. It's the periodic table for most elements' respective organochemistry. Ex: organoxenon, organotungsten, so forth. Not to be confused with the 'organic chemist's periodic table', which I can't seem to find, a humorous parody which lack the vast majority of elements.

Nice one. I was looking for this. I made a periodic table in the past but accidentally deleted it. I can't remember how I did it but I got a PHP script to display the periodic table properly using data from a db. I think I added the row number and column number to each entry then made a grid of table cells and displayed data only in the cells which matched the col and row num of one of the elements.

First of all: thank you that you let me in your collective. I would like to make my own periodic table in LaTeX to train Tikz (and because I don't like the most periodic tables). But I need to know what should be on a normal/professional periodic table. Here is what I think:


But I have found an image with more information on it. What does these numbers under the chemical formula mean? What are they?

And what do you think I need to add to a perfect periodic table?

Kind regards!

Those numbers show the electron counts in the s p d and f sub shells.

You could use Google Image Search. http://www.b.dk/viden/saa-fik-vi-et-nyt-grundstof ... is it useful to have such a periodic table? And are their a table with all the data on? I think of all the numbers under the element.

Not only does it have the Periodic Table, it has other stuff, like chemistry itself, physics...and even grammar!

Title: Periodic Table Puzzle
Post by: mirrorex on July 26, 2015, 08:01:34 AM
Hallo everyone. I'm not that good in chemistry. I'm kind of developing education games, my primary speciality is IT teaching. Last few weeks I spent exploring the Periodic Table and try to develop some interactive app, that may help in chemistry classes. The interesting thing, while I was trying to develop it on several languages, is that different nations classify the subcategories differently, so I have taken the reference from the english version of Wikipedia.  And i'd like to show my creation to the experts here. Hope there are not so many mistakes there :)

Title: Periodic Table of the Elements Display Case
Post by: rasiel on September 18, 2015, 07:24:07 PM
Hello everyone!

I've been a long time collector of elements and earlier this year I set about making a case to display them. I ended up making two actually. The first ended up getting a couple of stress cracks so I'll end up keeping it. The second one I'd like to sell for $500. I know it's a lot but there's a ton of work involved and the raw materials aren't cheap. Cheap plastic yellows over time and gets tiny cracks that turn it hazy. Lucite stays crystal clear but is quite a bit more expensive. The measurements are 1050mm width, 550mm in length and 50mm thick. Each cell is just over 50mm in width so as to accommodate elements that are embedded in 50x50mm acrylic blocks (I'm getting into casting these too!) or you can put bare mineral samples or whatever. The whole thing weighs almost 30 pounds and could be hung up on a wall if you drill a couple of holes. As is it can just stand on its own so you can see it from the front and back or allowed to lay down like a coffee table.

The one for sale is the same except without the title stenciled in. If you have any questions please let me know!

Wouldn't it be cool if Lego made a Periodic Table kit?  If you want to help make this happen: support this Lego Idea at the following address: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/119922 or Google Lego Ideas and then search for "Periodic Table."  I am a high school chemistry teacher and I love amusing my students with geeky science humor and fun science models like this in my classroom.

Title: Would anyone be able to help me proofread my periodic table?
Post by: hollyr on June 14, 2016, 07:44:25 PM
I make dresses for women in STEM (and sometimes shirts for guys too!) and one of my most popular items is the Periodic Table Dress.
With the four new elements now being added I need to update it and have done so, but I've been told there is a mistake in the old design and I can't figure out what it is. (It was a comment left on my website, with no explanation.) It's making me go crazy that I can't figure out where the mistake is. Would you be able to help me find it? Maybe it was just a troll, but it'd be nice to know before I spend the time to make this new dress with all that it entails.

And here is a picture of the old dress. The only thing I changed from the old design was a few colours and I switched the 4 new upcoming elements.

Thank you again so much for any help you can offer!

Nothin's jumping out at me except maybe some of the metalloid assignments, but they are defensible. One thing you might be careful with is assigning the new elements to certain categories, because it is unclear what their properties would be (if they lived long enough to have bulk properties). For example, is element 118 a noble gas? You might want to reserve a "gray" category for these and some of the other recently discovered elements.

Also as I understand it the new element names are not official yet, so you may want to wait until they are before you do any mass printing. :)

You used an old method of group numbering - now 1 to 18 is used.

Post by: hollyr on June 15, 2016, 09:43:22 PM
Thank you a million AWK and Corribus!

I've added 1-18 as you suggested (someone on Reddit mentioned I should keep in the old IA-VIIIA system, so I did. Is it used at all?)

I also changed the four new elements to a white unassigned color, which incidentally highlights them nicely. Does the term 'Unassigned' work best do you think?

All my dresses are printed on fabric individually and then made by hand here in California, so I can afford to update the design occasionally. :)

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Theodore Gray's periodic table table. Possibly not the best research tool, but an excellent general interest site (and a great one for getting kids interested. He basically built a periodic table table out of wood and stores much of his element collection in it.

www.periodictabletable.com

It's also interactive but has photos, stories, videos and rotating images of his own samples. He won the 2002 Ig Nobel prize for chemistry for the table itself.

Theo writes for Popular Science magazine and has also published his own paper periodic tables (which are the best I've seen) a few books and a deck of periodic table cards (one for each element).

WebElements ( www.webelements.com )is one that has been around as long as I can remember and has a lot of information about each element. As well as interesting information about discovery, uses etc, it aqlso has a lot of physical and chemical data and is a useful reference tool.

...and for sheer beauty, the RSC's "Visual element" table has a piece of digital art for each element created by Murray Robertson. http://www.rsc.org/periodic-table (then click on Visual Elements Images on the top left). The normal table is a good interactive one as well, and has a slider so you can see the states of elements at any temperature.

Title: New periodic table and chemistry reference: cptable.com
Post by: wlwl2 on November 24, 2017, 07:47:57 PM
Hi All,

I've made a tool (cptable.com) that I think might be able to help others. What differentiates this reference from other references:


This is unlike the other periodic tables I've seen, which are nice for more one-off cases (I guess they were not made with the same goals in mind).

I would rely on this tool a lot as a chemist (in the lab and for exams), not many of the other websites I've seen are in the same situation.

I hope that this is able to reach someone out there who will find it useful.

If we're now talking about useful tools for chemists check out

https://labdeck.com/interactive-periodic-table/

They have this cool interactive periodic table which has all key and useful element data but it also allows you to import the data as a variable and then you can do an array of things to it, they also have some integral chemistry function, nothing too crazy but definitely useful plus it's free so
