The Periodic Table: Its Story and Its Significance

The periodic table is one of the most potent icons in science. It lies at the core of chemistry and embodies the most fundamental principles of the field. The one definitive text on the development of the periodic table by van Spronsen (1969), has been out of print for a considerable time. The present book provides a successor to van Spronsen, but goes further in giving an The periodic table is one of the most potent icons in science.

    If you want a history of how all of the elements were discovered, and information about each of them, then this isn't the book for you. Go ahead and check out The Disappearing Spoon instead. The Periodic Table doesn't focus on the individual elements but instead looks at the periodic t...

    This book was intended to satisfy my craving for a good pop-sci book on chemistry. While there are hundreds of books covering a wide variety of topics in physics, it seems like there are relatively few books for the general reader that are about chemistry. Maybe it's because, as the au...

    I really liked this book. This one book, more than any other non-textbook, has convinced me that I need to change the content of my college level General Chemistry lectures. There are dozens of things that I realize now that were historically inaccurate in nearly every General Chemistr...

    I liked how the book started with some earlier version of the periodic tables explaining what the scientists were trying to accomplish with the table, and how it over time evolved through atomic weight, to the aufbau principle to the organization structure and explained the relationshi...

    This is the only book in-print and available that gives a comprehensive overview of the history of the organization of elements into a periodic system. There are other books but they are out-of-print and wicked expensive to find. I recommend this to anyone teaching chemistry, gettin...
