Do you remember the 1st twenty elements we studied at the junior high school? Of course, you’re beginning to call up the recital – hydrogen, helium, lithium, beryllium… About 150 years ago, precisely in 1869, the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements was born from the laboratory of Russian scientist Dimitry Mendeleev. Consequently, the "United Nations General Assembly and UNESCO have declared the year 2019 the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT2019)."
When we talk about the significant achievements in science which captures the essence of chemistry, physics and biology, the Periodic Table is absolutely typical. It was one of the numerous models of the 19th Century. The tabular arrangement of the chemical elements in the order of their atomic number, electron configuration and recurring properties has helped immensely over the years in deriving the behavior of and relationships between chemical elements.
As we approach 2019, all around the world, the 150th anniversary will be celebrated. Anyone who passes through the high school would probably learn about the first twenty elements been a topic in the Basic Science. Then if you are in the field of science at the senior high school, the Periodic Table is your baby.
Numerous organizations from 50 countries across the globe are supporting the initiative – the International Year of the Periodic Table. Notable among them are IUPAC in partnership with the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), European Association for Chemical and Molecular Science (EuCheMS), the International Council for Science (ICSU), International Astronomical Union (IAU), the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IUHPS) and 1001 Inventions.
Entries are invited from persons and bodies who are organizing events on the Periodic Table. An official website has been opened where details on International Year of the Periodic Table could be obtained. You could also register your event or activity on the provided portal.
You may organize creative academic or scientific activity portraying the essence of the Periodic Table and intimate the international collaborators who would curate the contents and showcase it across the world. visit https://www.iypt2019.org now for details.
