    One of the most useful tools in a chemist’s toolkit is the periodic table. It organizes all 118 elements based on patterns of chemical characteristic that they share. Its architecture is so brilliant that chemists of the past were able to use it to predict the existence of elements long before they were even discovered. This episode of Chemistry Basics explores the history of the periodic table, and explains the ingenious way it organizes the elements!

    Agree, until you are able to understand the periodic table chemistry makes little sense.
