links and events

Here are some links on the International Year of the Periodic Table. We have also put together links to periodic tables. (Unfortunately the events are already over)

Links to the year of the periodic table of the elements

General information


ChemistryView is an online journal in English for chemists and other scientists. ChemistryViews is provided by ChemPubSoc Europe, an organization of 16 European chemical societies including the GDCh.

IUPAC (in English)

The official website of the International Year of the Periodic Table (IYPT), provided by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

Chemie in unserer Zeit: special issue at the end of the year table

The journal "Chemie in unserer Zeit" has compiled a large selection of publications on the subject in an Online special - and made all of them freely accessible by the end of 2019. At the beginning there is discovery and development, followed by portraits of individual elements, classified according to main groups, subgroups, lanthanides, actinides and heavy elements. Experiments on individual elements are summarized in a separate subchapter.

Declaration of Love to the Periodic Table

Here, Sir Martyn Poliakoff and his team deliver a love letter to the periodic table of elements and show how the periodic table connects people around the world.

To discover the individual elements:

About the creation of the individual elements

In the beginning there was hydrogen, plus a bit of helium and a trace of lithium. In this video by the Max Planck Society, you can find out how all the elements that we know today were formed from this

All elements in a song:

(Almost) all elements in a book:

  • The World of Elements - The Elements of the World (Hans-Jürgen Quadbeck-Seeger, Wiley-VCH 2006, ISBN 978-3-527-31789-9)
    An overview of the chemical elements with detailed descriptions of the individual elements and their "inventors" or namesakes

Many elements on the wall:

  • Magnetarium - On the trail of the elements (Hans-Jürgen Quadbeck-Seeger, Blume-Verlag, Münster, 2019. ISBN 978-3-942530-65-1)
    a magnetic picture periodic table in DIN-A4 format to set up or hang up with magnetic collecting glasses for storing elements you have collected yourself or their connections.

Links to periodic tables

Here you can find links to other periodic tables

1: Periodic Table of the Royal Society of Chemistry
An interactive, graphically very nicely made periodic table with many features, such as melting point, boiling point, ionization energy, etc.

2: IUPAC periodic table:
The original, so to speak, of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC)

3. Periodic table of the European Chemical Society:
The periodic table for advanced students: The availability of the element is shown in different colors. Elements that are built into a standard smartphone and elements that are obtained under questionable conditions are also marked.

4. There are different periodic tables in which properties of the elements, such as ionization energy or density, are shown.

On this website we have put together further links to various periodic tables.
