150 Years of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements

    The UNESCO declared the year 2019 the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. 150 years ago the Russian chemist  Dimitry Mendeleev published a system for the chemical elements which has been kept until today: the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. According to IUPAC the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science, capturing the essence not only of chemistry but also of physics and biology. It is a unique tool, enabling scientists to predict the appearance and properties of matter on Earth and in the rest of the Universe.

    Anniversary program of the public lecture series "Wissenschaft für Alle"

    In 2019, the periodic table of the elements has its 150th birthday. Hence, our anniversary program of the public lectures series "Wissenschaft für Alle" in the year 2019 focuses on the periodic table and the six elements discovered at GSI with a talk for each one of them. A contribution on the hitherto achieved scientific highlights of GSI is also an integral part. Further information can be found on the website of "Wissenschaft für Alle" (German only).
