Periodic Table Celebration


This opportunity is closed

To celebrate 150 years of Dmitri Mendeleev’s Periodic Table, Xinova is calling for all innovators to share how significant the Periodic Table has been in their lives.Periodic Table Celebration, R&D, innovation partner, innovation partnership, innovation strategy consulting, business innovation, generate demand

The periodic table is one of the most powerful representations of our knowledge of the physical and natural world. Acting as a centerpiece for the unifying language of scientific inquiry, it stands as one of the most important achievements in science; capturing the essence not only of chemistry, but also of physics and biology.

A Brief History: In 1669, a German merchant and amateur alchemist Hennig Brand attempted to create a Philosopher’s Stone, an object that supposedly could turn metals into pure gold. He heated residues from boiled urine, and as the vapor condensed it burst into flames. This became the first scientific discovery of an element, phosphorus. From there, new elements were discovered and patterns unearthed.

The first Periodic Table as we know it came from Mendeleev’s representation of known elements, and a prediction of elements yet to be discovered, but that’s not all that his initial predictions resulted in. Properties such as electromagnetism and radioactivity were introduced, concepts such as the nucleus, electrons, orbitals, protons, neutrons, isotopes, quarks were developed, and theories such as relativity and quantum mechanics were supposed. All of this shaping what we understand about our modern-day Periodic Table.

We are seeking submissions from all of our innovators as they reflect on how significant it has been in their lives.

The best submissions have the chance to be featured on the Xinova:

  • website
  • social media account
  • newsletter 
  • or even covered by the media

Your contribution is elemental, so don’t be ionic. Share with us! 

This opportunity comes from the efforts of Xinova’s R&D Consulting and Innovation team.
