group 4 infographic

This latest infographic focuses on the Group 4 (Group 14 in IUPAC nomenclature) elements. Again, the name ‘crystallogens’ is technically not recognised by IUPAC – nor is ‘tetragens’, the other archaic name – but ‘the carbon group’ just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

One extra fact to add for the curious: although tin has the greatest number of stable isotopes, Xenon trumps it comprehensively if unstable isotopes are also included in the count, with well over 30 possible isotopes.

You can download the high resolution pdf file here. As always, any feedback and suggestions are welcome. Also, don’t forget you can access the previous infographics on groups 1, 2, and 3 on the infographics section of the site.
