International Year of Periodic Table 2019

About the International Year of Periodic Table

The Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science, capturing the essence not only of chemistry, but also of physics and biology. It is a unique tool, enabling scientists to predict the appearance and properties of matter on the Earth and in the rest of the Universe. 2019 will be the 150th anniversary since Dmitry Mendeleev discovered the Periodic System and has been proclaimed the "International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements" (IYPT2019) by the United Nations. The International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements will be a worldwide initiative to highlight the importance of the Periodic Table in science, technology, and sustainable development of humankind.
