The Periodic Table and the Elements What is the periodic table ? What information is obtained from the table ? How can elemental properties be predicted base on the PT ?

Dmitri MendeleevDmitri Mendeleev (1869) In 1869 Mendeleev and Lothar Meyer (Germany) published nearly identical classification schemes for elements known to date. The periodic table is base on the similarity of properties and reactivities exhibited by certain elements. Later, Henri Moseley ( England,1887-1915) established that each elements has a unique atomic number, which is how the current periodic table is organized. http://www.chem.msu.su/eng/misc/mendeleev/welcome.html

The Periodic Table A map of the building block of matter. http://www.chemsoc.org/viselements/pages/periodic_table.html

Periodic Table Expanded View The way the periodic table usually seen is a compress view, placing the Lanthanides and actinides at the bottom of the stable. The Periodic Table can be arrange by subshells. The s-block is Group IA and & IIA, the p-block is Group IIIA - VIIIA. The d-block is the transition metals, and the f-block are the Lanthanides and Actinide metals

Periodic Table: Metallic arrangement Layout of the Periodic Table: Metals vs. nonmetals Metals Nonmetals

Periodic Table: The three broad Classes Main, Transition, Rare Earth Main (Representative), Transition metals, lanthanides and actinides (rare earth)

Reading the Periodic Table: Classification Nonmetals, Metals, Metalloids, Noble gases

Across the Periodic Table Periods: Are arranged horizontally across the periodic table (rows 1-7) These elements have the same number of shells or energy levels. 2nd Period 6th Period

Down the Periodic Table Family: Are arranged vertically down the periodic table (columns or group, 1- 18 or 1-8 A,B) These elements have the same number electrons in the outer most shells, the valence shell. Alkali Family: 1 e- in the valence shell Alkali Family: 1 e- in the valence shell Halogen Family: 7 e- in the valence shell Halogen Family: 7 e- in the valence shell

Families of the Periodic Table Notable families of the Periodic Table and some important members: Alkali Alkaline (earth) Transition Metals Noble Gas Halogen

Periodic Table: electron behavior The periodic table can be classified by the behavior of their electrons

Hydrogen Hydrogen belongs to a family of its own. Hydrogen is a diatomic, reactive gas. Hydrogen was involved in the explosion of the Hindenberg. Hydrogen is promising as an alternative fuel source for automobiles

Alkali Metals 1 st column on the periodic table (Group 1) not including hydrogen. Very reactive metals, always combined with something else in nature (like in salt). Soft enough to cut with a butter knife

Alkaline Earth Metals Second column on the periodic table. (Group 2) Reactive metals that are always combined with nonmetals in nature. Several of these elements are important mineral nutrients (such as Mg and Ca

Transition Metals Elements in groups 3-11 Less reactive harder metals Includes metals used in jewelry and construction. Metals used “ as metal. ”

Boron Family Elements in group 13 Aluminum metal was once rare and expensive, not a “ disposable metal. ”

Carbon Family Elements in group 14 Contains elements important to life and computers. Carbon is the basis for an entire branch of chemistry. Silicon and Germanium are important semiconductors.

Nitrogen Family Elements in group 15 Nitrogen makes up over ¾ of the atmosphere. Nitrogen and phosphorus are both important in living things. Most of the world ’ s nitrogen is not available to living things. The red stuff on the tip of matches is phosphorus.

Oxygen Family Elements in group 16 Oxygen is necessary for respiration. Many things that stink, contain sulfur (rotten eggs, garlic, skunks,etc.)

Halogens Elements in group 17 Very reactive, volatile, diatomic, nonmetals Always found combined with other element in nature. Used as disinfectants and to strengthen teeth.

The Noble Gases Elements in group 18 VERY unreactive, monatomic gases Used in lighted “ neon ” signs Have a full valence shell.
