Article on the Periodic Table in American Scientist
There is an article on the Periodic Table in the current issue of American Scientist Magazine (Jan-Feb, 2008) issue), by Dr. Eric Scerri from UCLA and a frequent contributor to this forum.
He is also the author of the best-selling, The Periodic Table, Its Story and Its Significance, published by Oxford University Press, 2007.
Among other things, Dr. Scerri proposes a new form for the periodic table in the article.
I understand from Dr. Scerri that he is willing to send pdf copies of the article to anyone who sends him an E-mail message requesting one.
