National Periodic Table Day 2022: Today is the National Periodic Table Day. Hope, periodic table does not need any introduction. Nonetheless, let me define for the forgetters.

It is a tabular composition of chemical elements in accordance with their chemical properties and atomic number.

Honestly, I learnt chemistry as a subject for around 6 years but still I don’t know the exact arrangement and even some names of the chemical elements too.

The day is recognized to explore more about the periodic table and the chemist who discovered the chemical elements and its chemical reactions.

History of National Periodic Table Day:

On February 7, 2016, the first National Periodic Table Day was founded on February 7, 2016.

The day serves to promote the challenges overcome to develop the modern periodic table.

Mr. David T. Steineker, author, inventor, and chemistry teacher at Jefferson County Public Schools in Kentucky is inspired by those challenges.

He took the initiative to celebrate National Periodic Table Day based upon John Newlands’ first table of the elements published on February 7, 1863.

Interesting facts about National Periodic Table Day:

  • The first acknowledged Periodic table was invented by Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev,a Russian chemist during the year 1869.
  • Prior to that, a table with 56 elements was published by John Newlands, an English Chemist during the year 1863 and to recognize this table, this day is credited.
  • The elements with the same chemical behavior are arranged in the center whereas the metals and nonmetals are arranged to the left and right respectively.
  • Before the invention of periodic tables,only a few elements were identified and used by ancient people.
  • Elements like Gold, silver,carbon, copper,tin, iron, lead, mercury and sulfur are the first ancient used elements.
  • As of 2015, Out of the 118,94 elements were discovered naturally from the earth.Rest of the 24 elements discovered by laboratory experiments.
  • All the 118 elements as of 2015 are officially proclaimed by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).
  • Hydrogen, Chromium, Beryllium, Plutonium, Fluorine, Lead, Polonium, Arsenic, Caesium, Mercury are some of the dangerous and toxic elements.
  • All living organisms constitute chemical elements that mainly include Oxygen, Hydrogen, Carbon, Nitrogen, calcium and phosphorus.
  • Very little proportion of sodium, potassium, magnesium, sulfur and chlorine are also present depending upon the species.
  • Gold, Silver, copper, Bronze, platinum, Rhodium are the widely used elements in jewelry making.
