Before Mendeleïev: Origins of the table
As part of the Science Festival, the Mines ParisTech - PSL Mineralogy Museum invites you to an exhibition to discover the history behind Mendeleïev's table.
Mendeleïev's table is the final result of a work that lasted several decades during the 19th century. The collaboration of international researchers such as the Germans Döbereiner and Meyer, the French Chancourtois, the British Newlands, then the Russian Mendeleïev, has led to a classification of chemical elements in a periodic table used today by researchers, students and pupils all over the world.
In the magnificent setting of the Bibliothèque et du Musée de Minéralogie de Mines ParisTech - PSL, the exhibition will pay tribute to these lesser-known researchers, who are just as essential to the history of science.
Tuesday-Friday, 1:30 p.m. - 6 p.m. in the Library and the Museum of Mineralogy
Saturday: 10a.m. - 12:30p.m and 2 p.m.-5 p.M. et 14h-17h at the Museum of Mineralogy
