A Periodic Tale: 150 years and still up to date

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

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.

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