HBU celebrates the periodic table with the ACS Program in a Box
One-hundred and fifty years ago, Dmitri Mendeleev first presented his periodic system to the Russian Chemical Society, forever shaping the way we look at the elements. His system, which organized the elements based on atomic weight, valence, and measurable properties, laid the foundation for today’s Periodic Table. In honor of this, The United Nations has declared 2019 to be the International Year of the Periodic Table.
Hundreds of groups from around the U.S. and the globe celebrated of one of chemistry’s greatest achievements, including local groups at the University of St. Thomas and Houston Baptist University (shown above).
