2019 – Year of the Periodic Table

Chemical Elements play a vital role in our daily lives and are crucial for humankind and our planet, and for industry. The development of the Periodic Table of the Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science and a uniting scientific concept, with broad implications in Astronomy,Chemistry, Physics, Biology and other natural sciences.

The International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements in 2019 will coincide with the 150th anniversary of the discovery of the Periodic System by Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869.

It is a unique tool enabling scientists to predict the appearance and properties of matter on Earth and in the Universe. Many chemical elements are crucial to enhance the value and performance of products necessary for humankind, our planet, and industrial endeavors.

“As the global organization that provides objective scientific expertise and develops the essential tools for the application and communication of chemical knowledge for the benefit of humankind, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry is pleased and honored to make this announcement concerning the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements”

Professor Natalia Tarasova, IUPAC President.

In celebrating the International Year of the Periodic Table, Sciteum has come up with an array of year long events and kick starting with a colorful poster on IYPT – 2019.
