2019: The International Year of the Periodic Table
The United Nations has designated 2019 as the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements.
Join this ASDC Conference Call to find out what science engagement professionals from Science Centres and Museums across the UK are doing to celebrate.
The year will coincide with the 150th anniversary of the table’s creation by Dmitry Mendeleev. It will also mark a number of other milestones in the history of chemistry, including the discovery of phosphorus 350 years ago, Antoine Lavoisier’s categorisation of 33 elements in 1789 and the formulation of the law of the triads by Johann Wolfgang Döbereiner 190 years ago.
