Periodic table for advanced users

This periodic table was published by the European Chemical Society. The different colors show the availability of the items. Elements that are installed in a standard smartphone are marked with the smartphone symbol. Elements that are obtained under questionable conditions, i.e. in countries where war is raging and/or child labor is common, are marked with gray color.
