The Periodic Table - Names of the Periodic Table Elements classified as Other Metals
The 7 elements classified as "other metals" are located in groups 13, 14, and 15 of the Periodic Table. All of these elements are solid, have a relatively high density and are opaque.
The Names of the "Other Metals" on the Periodic Table are:
The Periodic Table - Names of the Periodic Table Elements classified as Non-Metals
The 7 elements classified as "Non-Metals" are located in Groups 14,15 and 16 of the Periodic Table. non-metals are not easily able to conduct electricity or heat and do not reflect light. Non-metallic elements are very brittle, and cannot be rolled into wires or pounded into sheets. Non-metallic elements exist, at room temperature, in 2 of the 3 states of matter : Gases (such as Oxygen) and Solids (such as carbon).
The Names of the Non-Metals elements in the Periodic Table are:
The Periodic Table - Names of the Periodic Table Elements classified as Halogens
The 5 elements classified as "Halogens" are located in Group 7 of the Periodic Table. The term "halogen" means "salt-former" and compounds containing halogens are called "salts". The halogens exist, at room temperature, in all three states of matter - Gases such as Fluorine & Chlorine, Solids such as Iodine and Astatine and Liquid as in Bromine.
The Names of the Halogens elements in the Periodic Table are:
The Periodic Table - Periodic Table Elements classified as Noble Gases
The 6 elements classified as "Noble Gases" are located in Group 18 of the interactive Periodic Table.
The elements forming the Six Noble Gases on the Periodic Table are:
The Periodic Table - Periodic Table Elements classified as Rare Earth Elements
The elements classified as "Rare Earth Elements" are located in Group 3 of the Periodic Table and in the 6th and 7th periods. The Rare Earth Elements are of the Lanthanide and Actinide series. Most of the elements in the Actinide series are synthetic or man-made.
Dimitri Mendeleev and the History of the Periodic Table
Read about the History of the Periodic Table. Dimitri Mendeleev was born on February 7th 1834 in Tobolsk, a Town in Siberia. In 1869 at the age of 35 the famous Russian Scientist perceived a totally new classification Method "the periodic table", he included all the 65 elements known in his time by their atomic weights and chemical valency. Mendeleev then went even further, using the remaining gaps and spaces in his periodic table, he correctly concluded that a further group of yet unknown elements must exist in order to fill in the gaps in his Periodic Table, this group we now know as the lanthanides, and is Group six of our modern Standardised Periodic Table.
The Periodic Table - Interactive Periodic Table
Fifty years after Dimitri Mendeleev created the Periodic cable, the British scientist Henry Moseley discovered that the number of protons in the nucleus of a particular type of atom was always the same. When atoms are arranged via their Atomic Number, the few remaining problems with Mendeleev's original periodic table disappeared. Due to Moseley's work, the modern periodic table is based on the atomic numbers of the elements rather than atomic mass.
Dimitri Mendeleev's work on the Periodic Table chart recognised
Dimitri Mendeleev has clearly left his mark on modern science, indeed all modern Scientists are familiar with Standardised version of his Periodic table. Mendeleyev's homeland, Russia, has recognised the significance of his work by naming the "Mendeleyev University of Chemical Technology" in Moscow in his honour.
The Periodic Table IUPAC and the modern standardised Periodic Table Chart
The standardised periodic table in use today was agreed by the International Union of Pure Applied Chemistry, IUPAC, in 1985 and now recognises more periods and elements than Dimitri Mendeleev knew in his day in his day but still all fitting into his concept of the "Periodic Table".
