How Mendeleev issued his predictions: comment on Andrea Woody
Much has been said about the accuracy of the famous predictions of the Russian chemist Dmitrii Ivanovich Mendeleev, but far less has been written on how he made his predictions. Here we offer an
Values in action : simplicity, completeness, and carefulness in the development of the systematisations of chemical elements
philosophical analysis. In what follows, I suggest that two initially promising ways of analysing simplicity of 1863-1864 – simplicity as regularity and simplicity as understanding – unfortunately do
Ontological Derivation of Mendeleev's Periodic Table of Chemical Elements
Using two criteria (e.g., oxidation and atomic weights), the major structure of Mendeleev’s Periodic Table in ontology is regenerated.
Lothar Meyer’s Pathway to Periodicity
This study strives toward a deeper understanding of the history of the discovery of the archetypical symbol of chemistry as a whole, the periodic table, and concludes by offering a wider object lesson.
Where Mendeleev was wrong: predicted elements that have never been found
This contribution gives a detailed account of the element predictions Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev made after setting up the periodic table of the elements in 1869, with a special focus on those that
The Value of Completeness: How Mendeleev Used His Periodic System to Make Predictions
Dmitrii Mendeleev’s periodic system is known for its predictive accuracy, but talk of its completeness is rarer. This is surprising because completeness (polnost’) was a quality that Mendeleev saw as

Factors Which Led Mendeleev to the Periodic Law
THE name of Mendeleev is familiar to every chemist, and is at once associated with the periodic law, but few carry the con nection any farther, or consider the factors which were respon sible for the
The Reception of Mendeleev's Periodic Law in America and Britain
La classification periodique des elements de Mendeleev a attire l'attention de nombreux chimistes americains et britanniques, jusqu'a ce qu'ils decouvrent des elements dont les proprietes avaient ete
Mendeleev's periodic system of chemical elements
Between 1869 and 1871, D. I. Mendeleev, a teacher at the University at St Petersburg published a textbook of general chemistry intended for his students. The title, Principles of Chemistry was
The Periodic System of the Chemical Elements: The Search for Its Discoverer
This paper has attempted to analyze the work of the six claimants, according to rigorously specified criteria, to decide to what extent they should be viewed as discoverers of the periodic system.
