Year of the periodic table of the elements

2019 - The International Year of the Periodic Table

The periodic table is a fascinating system of order that nature has given the elements. The Russian chemist Dimitri Mendelejew and the German chemist Lothar Meyer recognized this independently of each other almost simultaneously in 1869. 2019 marks the 150th anniversary of the discovery of the periodic table. The General Assembly of the United Nations and UNESCO have therefore declared 2019 the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, the International Year of the Periodic Table.
