Element of the month

2019-03-04

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).

The second element is Nickel (Ni) which has been used for thousands of years but was formally discovered by the swede Axel Frederik Cronstedt in 1751.

The metal is mainly used in stainless steel, but also coins and batteries.
