Periodic Tables of Chemical Elements
Discovered more chemical elements after Lavoisier
Dobereiner notice some triads (three elements with similar properties)
Mendeleyev (1834-1907) and Meyor (1830-1895) independently organized
property information about chemical elements. Their effort resulted in
periodic tables of elements
Mendeleyev made a bigger impact because his tables predicted the existence
of some elements unknown at that time.
Since arrangements according to atomic weight were unsatisfactory,
atomic numbers were invented
Periodic tables guided the search of new elements, served
as a framework showing the relationship among elements, confirmed
a substance as an element, and steered the synthesis of new elements
