Short description The discovery of the chemical elements ranks among the most striking scientific achievements of all time. Discover the faces behind the scientist pioneers involved, in an eye-catching pop-art rendering of the familiar periodic table.
From the contents The familiar periodic table of the elements is used as a template to display the portraits of the scientists who discovered each element, complete with their names and life dates. Elements known since antiquity, for which no discoverer can be named are depicted with an archeological object documenting their earliest known use by mankind. Additional facts about the history of the chemical elements, e. g. the development of the atomic model and the scientists behind it, are displayed in the margin of the table.
