Perfect for classroom use, this attractively designed poster encourages students to look at and think about the chemical elements. The unique, color-coded layout allows more than 3,000 element data to be displayed on the chart -- much more than is possible on any standard periodic table. The upper panel shows the physical characteristics of the elements and their important isotopes, while the lower panel contains chemical, biological and geological data. More than 20 different characteristics are displayed for each element, including the first data on the recently discovered, as yet unnamed, heavy elements 112 to 118. All the data has been painstakingly compiled from international standards and recommendations by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, is 100 error-free and conforms to the latest published information. A miniature database of chemical and physical information; handy for studying, teaching, and research.
Ekkehard Fluck is the former head of the Gmelin Institute for Inorganic Chemistry (Frankfurt, Germany). He is also a long-time member of the International Council for Science as well as other multi-national scientific organizations. Klaus Heumann is the former Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Mainz (Germany). He is a long-time member of the IUPAC commission on isotope abundances and atomic weights, in which capacity he is actively involved in shaping the IUPAC recommendations on chemical element data.
The chart contains two complete periodic tables in an intuitive, color-coded layout. For each element, the following information is given: element symbol element name atomic number relative atomic mass isotope masses number and abundance of natural isotopes longest-lived radioisotope, type of decay abundance in the earth's crust first ionization energy density melting and boling point electron configuration atomic radius covalent radius ionic radius by oxidation number van der Waals radius electronegativity oxidation states reduction potential physiological significance
