The Chemistry Advent Calendar #IYPT2019

Welcome to the 2019 edition of the Compound Interest #ChemistryAdvent calendar! As it’s the International Year of the Periodic Table, this year we’re running with a periodic table theme – every day in the run-up to Christmas, there’ll be a different periodic table featured.

New links will appear below the graphic each day (note that I’ve decided to dispense with the clickable image this year, as it’s time-consuming to set up and only works on some devices anyway).

Day 1: A periodic table of element discoveries

Day 2: A periodic table of element Scrabble scores

Day 3: A periodic table of rejected element names

Day 4: A periodic table of Google search hits

Day 5: A periodic table of element name origins

Day 6: A periodic table of the origins of the elements

Day 7: A periodic table of elements used in batteries

Day 8: A periodic table of endangered elements

Day 9: A periodic table of element applications

Day 10: A periodic table of common ions

Day 11: A periodic table of element sources

Day 12: A periodic table of the human body’s elements

Day 13: A periodic table of elements in the Earth’s crust

Don’t forget you can also return to previous years’ Chemistry Advent calendars. 2018’s highlighted a range of key figures in chemistry history, while 2017’s (and those of previous years) highlighted various examples of festive chemistry.
