Dimitri Mendeleev

The father of the modern periodic table.

In the 19th century elemenets were being discovered rapidly, a way was need to organize them.

He arranged the atoms according to increasing atomic weight.

Ok so what?

The brilliance of his arrangement came from the atoms he left off the table . . . Those that had not yet been discovered.

Mendeleev arranged his table in rows and columns that not only addressed increasing atomic mass but was able to predict undiscovered elements based on properties.


Mendeleev's Table

For years chemists had known about elements sharing similar properties, in 1869 Dimitri Mendeleev provided an organized arrangement.

His most famous omission he named eka-silicon. He predicted an element that had a greater mass than silicon, a smaller mass than tin but shared similar properties with both elements.


The Modern Periodic Table

Arranged in rows and columns.

 A row is called a period

 A column is called a group or family

Some of the groups (or families) have special names

that help us identify them as a collective.

Famous families if you will . . .


The Alkalai Metals

The include all of Group 1: Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs and Fr*.

Soft shiny metals that react violently with water to produce H2 gas.

Electron configurations of ns1. (ie Li is 1s22s1)

Readily form +1 cations (ie Na loses and electron to form Na+)

*Francium only exists for microseconds so it cannot be studied in quantity.


The Alkaline Earth Metals

The include all of Group 2: Be, Mg, Ca, Sr and Ba.

These metals are soft but not quite as much as those of Group 1.

They are stable in air (unlike the Alkalai Metals)

Electron configurations of ns2. (ie Be is 1s22s2)

Readily form +2 cations (ie Mg loses 2 electrons to form Mg2+)


The Transition Metals

Electron-rich elements that most resemble what we think of when we talk about metals:

 they’re malleable and ductile

 they conduct electricity

 the free flow of electrons yields many colorful solutions

 they’re shiny

 they conduct heat


Lanthanides and Actinides

Many of these elements are synthetic, they’re made in particle accelerators and used for research or highly specific purposes.

They are metals but they are very dense and many are quite rare.


The Metalloids

The metalloids

Elements include: B, Si, P, As, Se, and Te (sometimes Al, Ge and Sb make the cut)

They’re not quite metals but they’re not quite non-metals.

They’re semi-conductors (they can selectively conduct electricity).

Si, the semiconductor the computer industry is built upon


The Halogens

The Halogens

Elements include: F, Cl, Br, I and At

Readily form -1 anions (ie Cl gains an electron to form Cl-)

React well with metals from Groups 1 and 2.

Behave as other non-metals (non-conductive, not shiny etc.)


The Noble Gases

These are the elements found in Group 18, the farthest to the right on the periodic table.

They are all gases and are VERYstable (they do not readily undergo reaction).

The have full energy levels and sub-shells. For example Ar has electron configuration 1s22s22p63s23p6.

When we pass a high-voltage current through any of these gases we get extremely bright light.

Trends in the Table

Atomic Radius (Atomic Size)

Increases down a Group.

Decreases from left to right in a period.

Trends in the Table

1st Ionization Energy

- the energy required to remove 1 electron from a neutral atom

Ionization energy decreases down a Group.

Ionization increase from left to right in a period.


Trends in the Table

Electron Affinity

- the energy released when an atom gains an electron forming a -1 anion
