Visualize the elements
You might remember the Periodic Table as a dreary chart on a classroom wall, but this beautifully illustrated book brings it to new life. Combining cutting edge science with colorful infographics, The Periodic Table lets you compare and contrast the elements at a glance. Which is the densest? Which has the largest atoms? Why are some of them radioactive?
Including a big picture view of the Table and how atoms work, it also delves into the individual elements, including new and recently discovered entries. Each is accompanied by technical data (category, atomic number, weight, boiling point) as well as fun facts and anecdotes about their discoveries and surprising uses.
Here's your chance to truly see the Periodic Table for the first time.
