Dmitri Mendeleev

Dmitri Mendeleev developed the first modern periodic table in 1869 with the help and influence of his contemporaries and predecessors. He developed his table to illustrate periodic trends in the properties of the then-known elements. Mendeleev also predicted some properties of then-unknown elements that would be expected to fill gaps in this table. Most of his predictions were proved correct when the elements in question were subsequently discovered. Mendeleev's periodic table has since been expanded and refined with the discovery or synthesis of further new elements and the development of new theoretical models to explain chemical behaviour.

Even though Dmitri can’t claim all the credit for the periodic table we think the work he did was a monumental step in both Chemistry and Physics using a relatively simple concept.
