Caption: Mendeleev's first periodic table. Dating from 1869, these notes show the early concept of a periodic table of the elements, as proposed by the Russian chemist Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev (1834-1907). He left gaps in the table for new elements, that were indeed later discovered, vindicating his theory. This version has the elements listed using chemical symbols, and ordered by atomic weight, but the fully correct chemical arrangement has not yet emerged. The column at left includes fluorine, oxygen, nitrogen, carbon and boron. The final version (1871) had the elements arranged in the familiar vertical columns or groups.Restrictions:
