A Periodic Tale: 150 years and still up to date

28 May 2019 17:30-20:00, Aberdeen, United Kingdom


Introduction
Abstract:
It has been 150 years since Mendeleev presented his Periodic Table, and how successful it has proved to be! I will talk you through how laying out the elements in a systematic fashion is used to make predictions of properties that might otherwise be unexpected, using examples from my own work from group 1 – the alkali metals – through to phosphorus and its similarities to carbon, as well as examples from the transition metals and compounds of uranium.

Details:
Join us for refreshments from 17.30. Lecture will start at 18.30.
