52 games with the Periodic Table

  1. 1. http://magsci.eu/52gamespt Games with the Periodic Table to Increase Public Awareness of Science Jordi Poater Universitat de Barcelona & ICREA Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
  2. 2. http://magsci.eu/52gamespt Two years ago: Aromaticity
  3. 3. http://magsci.eu/52gamespt Whats is aromaticity? “Widely applied for the characterization of specific features of conjugated cyclic molecular systems, the notion of aromaticity lacks a secure physical basis. Not that this has stopped aromaticity from being a wonderful source of creative activity in chemistry. We can think of no other concept that has led to so much exciting chemistry! Yet, although numerous indices of aromaticity have been designed, based on energetic, geometrical and magnetic criteria, no single property exists whose measurement could be taken as a direct, unequivocal measure of aromaticity.”R. Hoffmann, V.I. Minkin, B.K. Carpenter, Hyle, Int. J. Philos. Chem. 1997, 3, 3 º
  4. 4. http://magsci.eu/52gamespt Whats is aromaticity? M. Rosenberg, C. Dahlstrand, K. Kilså, H. Ottosson, Chem. Rev. 2014, 114, 5379
  5. 5. http://magsci.eu/52gamespt Why is the PT so relevant? The Periodic Table is probably the most compact and meaningful compilation of knowledge that man has yet devised (*). Astronomer Harlow Shapley, cited in the preface of “The Periodic, a Very Short Introduction”, by Eric R. Scerri, Oxford Univ Press, 2011. (*) PT is an icon very well known by the public, along with Rubik's Cube, indeed.
