The Evolution of the Periodic Table

wrote the first extensive
list of elements
containing 33 elements
metals and nonmetals
set up a table of elements
according to their relative
developed a table of atomic
introduced letters to symbolize
Johann W. Dobereiner
classified the existing
elements into group of
three’s - TRIADS
grouped the elements in a
spiral order divided by a
vertical line based on
increasing atomic weights
• arranged the known elements in order
of atomic weights and observed
similarities between the first and ninth
elements, the second and tenth
• proposed the 'Law of Octaves'
• compiled a Periodic Table of 56
elements based on the periodicity of
properties such as molar volume
when arranged in order of atomic
• arranged the elements in the
order of increasing atomic
mass (Periodic Table)
• discovered the Noble Gases.
• determined the atomic number of each
of the elements.
• modified the 'Periodic Law' to read
that the properties of the elements vary
periodically with their atomic numbers.

Use the periodic table to identify each
of the following sets of elements as
part of a group or a period of elements.
If the set does not represent a group or
a period, write none.

b. Li, Be, B
c. P, As, Sb
d. O, S, Se
e. Ag, Cd, Sn
