Mendeleyev's Dream: The Quest for the Elements

PD. Dr. Friedrich Esch (Senior Researcher, Chair of Physical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry - Technische Universität München (TUM))

How one scientist dreamt up the Periodic Table. "I saw in a dream a table where all elements fell into place as required" - ct. Dimitri Medeleev. He understood the abstract form of elements, not just their existence as isolated substances. In a single day in 1869, he sketched out an entire periodic table. This table made many accurate predictions and since then is the most useful table in science. Let's have journey across the awasome Mendeleev's Periodic Table, which shows the origins and the caractheristic of every atom present in the Universe.

Periodic Tales: The Curious Lives of the Elements

Everything is made up of them, from the outermost reaches of the Universe to the beer that you hold in your hands, including yourself and your smartphone. Like you, the elements have lives: personalities and attitudes, talents and shortcomings, stories rich with meaning. You may think of them as the inscrutable letters of the periodic table, but you know them much better than you realise. I will take you on a voyage of wonder and discovery, excitement and novelty, beauty and truth of some fundamental elements of the Periodic Table.
