Periodic Table: Then and Now
Dr. David Moore
In 1864 Newlands published his version of the periodic table and proposed the Law of Octaves (by analogy with the seven intervals of the musical scale).
This law stated that any given element will exhibit analogous behavior to the eighth element following it in the table.
Since Mendeleev came up with his first version of the periodic table, since then more than 700 versions of the table have been proposed.
