ACS Program in a Box: The Evolving Periodic Table

The Younger Chemist Committee is sponsoring the live webinar: The Evolving Periodic Table.   One-hundred and fifty years ago, Dmitri Mendeleev first presented his periodic system to the Russian Chemical Society, forever shaping the way we look at the elements. His system, which organized the elements based on atomic weight, valence, and measurable properties, laid out the foundation for today’s Periodic Table. In honor of this, The United Nations has declared 2019 to be the International Year of the Periodic Table. During this event, attendees will learn about the conflicting proposals from around the world on how the elements should be organized and why our current system is in effect today. Additionally, participants will hear about the contributions to science by African Americans as part of black history month. There is no charge for attending. As a bonus to attendees, there will be food and a hot chocolate bar!

This webinar will be broadcast on Wednesday, February 26 at 7:00 pm in the Muellar Science Hall, room 101 in the Russell Sage College Campus (Bldg 33 on the campus map)Click here for directions to Russell Sage; parking is free, and lots are shown on the campus map.  For additional details, please contact YCC Chair Montwaun Young at youngm8@rpi.edu.
