The International Year of the Periodic Table

2019 is the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, marking 150 years since Dimitri Mendeleev ordered the elements into a table. Of course, the table and our understanding of chemical periodicity has evolved in the intervening time, and this collection features research from across those 150 years, showcasing important and interesting research papers from the archive, along with commentaries and multimedia from across the Nature family.

This Collection is editorially independent, produced with financial support from a third party. About this content.
