Dmitri Mendeleev

Dmitri Mendeleev

In a paper published in 1869, Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev outlined a system to classify elements and demonstrate the periodic recurrence of chemical properties in the elements. For the most part, Mendeleev's system was based on ascending atomic weight. But he was also willing to adjust an element's position—no matter its atomic weight—so that it would be aligned with other elements having similar properties. He believed that the atomic weights determined for some elements were inaccurate. In fact, such inaccuracies explained most discrepancies. But in a few cases, the discrepancies were due to isotopes, which were unknown to Mendeleev.
