As part of these celebrations, we are offering free access to the virtual issue of PAC: 60 seminal papers published in PAC over the past 60 years.
Institute for Energy and Environmental Research For a safer, healthier environment and the democratization of science. Why do you need to know the symbols for chemical elements? Among other things, knowing the symbols makes reading the Periodic Table much easier. This link to on-line Periodic Tables is another way to see the information presented below. Many of these tables contain hot links to additional information about each of the elements. We encourage you to explore!
For chemistry students and teachers: The tabular chart on the right is arranged by Atomic mass weight. Please note that the elements do not show their natural relation towards each other as in the Periodic system. There you can find the metals, semi-conductor s , non-metal s , inert noble gas ses , Halogens, Lanthanoides, Actinoids rare earth elements and transition metals.

Oxygen O , nonmetallic chemical element of Group 16 VIa, or the oxygen group of the periodic table. Oxygen is a colourless, odourless, tasteless gas essential to living organisms, being taken up by animals, which convert it to carbon dioxide; plants, in turn, utilize carbon dioxide as a source of carbon and return the oxygen to the atmosphere. Oxygen forms compounds by reaction with practically any other element, as well as by reactions that displace elements from their combinations with each other; in many cases, these processes are accompanied by the evolution of heat and light and in such cases are called combustions. Its most important compound is water. Oxygen was discovered about by a Swedish chemist, Carl Wilhelm Scheele , who obtained it by heating potassium nitrate , mercuric oxide , and many other substances. An English chemist, Joseph Priestley , independently discovered oxygen in by the thermal decomposition of mercuric oxide and published his findings the same year, three years before Scheele published.

Here is a list of elements of the periodic table , their atomic numbers, and element symbols. The list is ordered by increasing atomic number, which is the number of protons in an atom of that element. Each element has a symbol, which is a one- or two-letter abbreviation of its name.
Sometimes it's nice to have a paper version of the periodic table of the elements that you can refer to when working problems or doing experiments in the lab. This is a collection of periodic tables that you can print and use. Note: For values featuring all elements, more free printable periodic tables are also available. Here is the pdf file of the color periodic table so you can save and print it.
This is a list of the chemical elements which have been identified as of A chemical element, often simply called an element, is a species of atoms which all have the same number of protons in their atomic nuclei i. A popular visualization of all elements is the periodic table of the elements , a convenient tabular arrangement of the elements by their chemical properties that uses abbreviated chemical symbols in place of full element names, but the simpler list format presented here may also be useful. Like the periodic table, the list below organizes the elements by the number of protons in their atoms; it can also be organized by other properties, such as atomic weight , density , and electronegativity. For more detailed information about the origins of element names, see List of chemical element name etymologies. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The periodic table also known as the periodic table of elements is organized so scientists can quickly discern the properties of individual elements such as their mass, electron number, electron configuration and their unique chemical properties. Metals reside on the left side of the table, while non-metals reside on the right. Organizing the elements to help further our understanding was first provided by Dmitri Mendeleev. This periodic table of the elements with names, atomic number, symbol and mass is color-coded for easier reference by students and researchers. This periodic table chart lists elements by name in alphabetical order including the element symbol, atomic number, and Pauling electronegativity value for quick and simple reference.

Transition metal , any of various chemical elements that have valence electrons—i. While the term transition has no particular chemical significance, it is a convenient name by which to distinguish the similarity of the atomic structures and resulting properties of the elements so designated. They occupy the middle portions of the long periods of the periodic table of elements between the groups on the left-hand side and the groups on the right. The most striking similarities shared by the 24 elements in question are that they are all metals and that most of them are hard, strong, and lustrous, have high melting and boiling points, and are good conductors of heat and electricity. The range in these properties is considerable; therefore the statements are comparative with the general properties of all the other elements.
Periodic Table Fun Activities. Reading Strategy page Previewing Before you read, complete the table by writing two questions about the periodic table on pages — There are endless facts to memorise, and there are few obvious and intuitively pleasing answers to questions such as why the periodic table has eight columns and not seven or nine.

This is a list of chemical elements , sorted by atomic mass or most stable isotope and color coded according to type of element. Each element's atomic number , name, element symbol , and group and period numbers on the periodic table are given. The number in parenthesis gives the uncertainty in the "concise notation" dis given in parenthesis next to the least significant digits to which it applies", e.
Periodic variations in size and chemical properties are important factors in dictating the types of chemical reactions the elements undergo and the kinds of chemical compounds they form.
