The INTERNET Database of Periodic Tables


There are hundreds of periodic tables in web space, but there is only one comprehensive database of periodic tables & periodic system formulations. If you know of an interesting periodic table that is missing, please contact the database curator: Dr Mark R Leach.

Gamow [First] Ribbon Periodic Table

George Gamow is well known for his Gamow 1961 ribbon formulation, but this actually first appeared in a 1948 book: One, Two, Three... Infinity.

Conal Boyce writes:

"The 1961 version looks like something Gamow redrew from scratch, adding about a dozen new items as he went (also an extra loop), but also introducing some 4 or 5 goofy errors: the non-existent Fa for Ga, the misplaced Ba where Sr belongs, etc. In comparison, the 1948 version lacks those dozen updates but is free of the goofy typo type errors that crept into the 1961 version. Also, the 1948 version has the distinction of being "it" so to speak, as the moment when the Gamow scheme first appeared on the scene, to be reprinted in a 1953 paperback, which is where I first saw it, in 1953.":

Thanks to Conal for the tip!

1942

Barber & Taylor Periodic Table

The periodic table that appears on the inside of the front cover of: Barber, H.H., Taylor, T.I. Semimicro Qualitative Analysis, Harper, 1942. Click here for a larger version.

Conal Boyce writes:

"No attribution is given, so one assumes Barber & Taylor concocted [the formulation] themselves. Why do they stagger rows 4, 5, 6? This format suggests to me a 2D PT that wants to be genuinely 3D, as distinct from a 2D PT embedded arbitrarily in 3D space, a type often referred to as 3D which is not quite true. For example, Gamow 1961":

Stewart's Chemosphere

P J Stewart, a good friend of the periodic table database, has mapped a PT onto a sphere.

PJS writes: "It is Janet Rajeuni 2014  wrapped round a sphere, going back to Mazurs 1965, and Tsimmerman 2006.  Arabic numerals indicate shells (values of principal quantum number); Roman numerals indicate periods."

MIT Periodic Table Characters

Eric Scerri writes:

"This apparently hangs on a wall of Building 6 at MIT. I have identified the people around the old-school periodic table, they are (from left to right): Zosimos, Ko Hung, Jabir, Boyle, Lomonosov, Lavoisier, Berzelius, Wohler, Cannizzaro, Berthelot & Mendeleev":
