Element of the month

2019-02-08

This year it's 150 years ago that Dmítriy Ivánovich Mendeléyev first published the Periodic Law that would later become the periodic table. Unesco has decided to celebrate this by calling 2019 "International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements" (IYPT).

We will publish one or more elements found by Swedish researchers every month, in order to celebrate the periodic table. We start with the first elements that were found by Swedish scientists and will eventually end up in modern time.

The first element is Cobalt (Co) which was found year 1735 by Georg Brandt. It's extra special for us because he was a researcher in Chemistry at Uppsala University.
