This table of elements shows examples of everyday objects that contain each element.



The first periodic table to become generally accepted was that of the Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869; with an ordered arrangement of the chemical elements into rows (“periods“) and columns (“groups“). Not all elements were known by then, but Mendeleev successfully used the periodic law to predict some properties of the missing elements. Element groups have similar chemical properties due to having the same number of electrons in their outermost shell.The boxes display each element’s name, symbol, atomic number, year of discovery, recognizable object where the element can be found, and property icons.

In addition to the standard elements, this table contains high atomic number elements that can be predicted to have crystal structures and have been synthesized in small amounts. A synopsis of ongoing research into the discovery of new elements is included, as well as the concept of potentially stable elements on hypothetical islands of stability far beyond the heaviest possible synthetisable elements.

The table also includes boxes for the only two antimatter elements that have been successfully synthesized, as well as a brief explanation of how they were created.
