On the 1st March 1869, Dimitri Mendeleev sketched the first version of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, which has since then given unprecedented structure and predictive power to chemical research.

150 years on, we are launching a website that adopts the periodic ordering suggested by Mendeleev, in order to provide a structured overview of the patented applications of each element: over the cause of the 2019 International Year of the Periodic Table, our Periodic Table of Patents will be populated with interactive links to fascinating science facts and historical anecdotes, ranging from the caesium-based atomic clock to the 1950s craze nuclear energy to the rapidly changing interests in different allotropes of carbon.
