Challenges for the periodic systems of elements: chemical, historical and mathematical perspectives

  title={Challenges for the periodic systems of elements: chemical, historical and mathematical perspectives},
  author={Restrepo Guillermo},
Unveiling numerical trends among either atomic or equivalent weights that somehow preserved resemblances among elements was frequent in the 1860s. Standing out from the crowd, Meyer and Mendeleev went beyond numerical relationships, certainly motivated by a pedagogical aim. Both were after a system synthesizing the chemical knowledge of their times in an appealing way to be presented to chemistry students. Is it still the periodic system aiming at that? Is it really a map of the current… 



A Well-Ordered Thing

Dmitrii Mendeleev (1834–1907) is a name we recognize, but perhaps only as the creator of the periodic table of elements. Generally, little else has been known about him. This book is an authoritative

Essays in the Philosophy of Chemistry

The chapter by Joseph E. Earley Sr. (chap. 10) can only be described as a tour de force in every sense of the term. Earley's writing, perhaps more than that of any other currently active author,
