Every now and then I come across an online resource that makes me go “wow”, and is worth sharing. This dynamic periodic table of the elements is one of these. If you’re a chemistry student or teacher then you’ll definitely find this useful.
The table boasts lots of features, with an incredible amount of information crammed onto the one page, available in different views. This includes element names in dozens of languages, even Asian scripts, and the ability to switch between views simple, with names, with electron configuration, and inline inner transition metals.
The site’s developers also promise they’ll update details the day a new element is discovered or synthesized, and even keep up with new, more precise relative atomic weights as IUPAC publishes them.
You can even use the site offline – simply load the site in your browser, click around the tabs to cache most of the data, and then activate the Work Offline feature of your browser before revisiting the site. Most of the site will continue to function without Internet connectivity.
Thanks to all involved in the development if this resource, and for making it freely available.
