Periodic Table of Scientists

Periodic Table with Distinguished Scientists

Inspired by the DC Periodic Table, Jésica Sánchez Mazón and myself present our version with distinguished scientists.

Each image is a link that takes you to the scientist’s Wikipedia page. In addition, on the back (second page of the PDF) you can see both the name of each element and that of each scientist (both linked to Wikipedia).


Some notes about the Table:

  • As far as possible, we have chosen scientists (physicists/chemists and some mathematicians) whose surname reminds us of the element’s name (both pronounced in English).
  • Elements named after a scientist are associated with that scientist.
  • Elements whose symbol coincides with a unit that comes from a scientist have been associated with that scientist.
  • When in doubt, the priority has been to choose the most important scientists and/or Nobel Prize winners.
If you like these special Periodic Tables, take a look at the versions with pictures, DC, marvel, disney, asterix or simpsons characters. You also have a conventional version.
