An infographic on the history of the Periodic Table of Elements and its timeline

The Periodic Table is familiar to most of us with a knowledge of high school chemistry. We know that it neatly and effectively outlines the naturally occurring elements, as well as the ones created in the lab. March 2022 marks 153 years since the Russian scientist, Dmitri Mendeleev, took all of the known elements and arranged them into his famous table in 1869. However, there were many before him, who helped him get to that point and over 200 years of understanding the chemical and physical properties of elements culminated in this simple but important table. Here is an infographic of its history.
