The International Year of the Periodic Table 2019

Jan Reedijk / Natalia Tarasova
Published Online: 2019-01-07 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/ci-2019-0101


This year we celebrate the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements in the format proposed by Mendeleev in 1869, and its continued development to this day. This issue of CI describes several aspects of the Periodic Table, its history and celebration, and also addresses the pathways to possible new elements. In this preface we address some highlights of the papers and pay attention to the history of events that have led to IYPT2019.
