It's interesting to note that Dmitri Mendeleyev "reported, 'I saw in a dream a table where all the elements fell into place as required. Awakening, I immediately wrote it down on a piece of paper. Only in one place did a correction later seem necessary.' As a result of this dream, the periodic table of the elements was created. It enabled Mendeleyev to predict the existence, as well as the properties, of three new elements; those elements were discovered within fifteen years." (See B. Kedrov, "On the Question of Scientific Creativity," Voprosy Psikologii3, 1957, p. 91-113)

The above quote comes from the book, Our Dreaming Minds, by Robert L. Van de Castle, Ph.D., former director of the Sleep and Dream Laboratory at the University of Virginia Medical School.

your question does not make sense. your question does not make sense.

Dmitri Mendeleev, a Russian chemist, was the first scientist to make a periodic table much like the one we use today.

Mendeleev worked also in spectroscopy, ethanol-water system, capillarity, petroleum chemistry.

He created the first perodic table and organized the element in the periodic table by atomic mass

Dmitri Mendeleev, a Russian chemist, was the first scientist to make a periodic table. He built upon research from scientists such as Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier and Stanislao Cannizzaro.

Dmitri Mendeleev arranged the elements known at that time in the increasing order of atomic masses and repeating properties, so that it is easier to classify and study the properties of the elements.

Stanislao Cannizzaro, an Italian chemist who worked with Dmitri, inspired Dmitri Mendeleev to come up with his creative ideas.He also built upon the work of chemist Antoine Lavoisier, who isolated and named oxygen, uncovering its role in the process of combustion.

He used the atomic mass of the elements to make the periodic table.

Yes, Dmitri Mendeleev made the Periodic Table of Elements, and interestingly enough, he did it without knowing all of the natural elements! As scientists discovered new elements, they realized the elements fit right into place on Dmitri's table.

Jon Jakob Berzelius didn't actually help make the table. He was the first to propose the idea of a system that organized the elements and their symbols. Later on, Dmitri Mendeleev actually started to create the table, now known as the Periodic Table of Elements. he helped make the table!!! DIZZZOY!!! he founded Calcium in the periodic table

Mendeleev was a scientist. He arranged elements in order of atomic mass.

Mendeleev was able to predict the properties of the elements that were not discovered at that time. He left gaps for these elements in his periodic table.

The periodic table of the chemical elements is a tabular method of displaying the chemical elements. Although precursors to this table exist, its invention is generally credited to Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869. Mendeleev intended the table to illustrate recurring ("periodic") trends in the properties of the elements. The layout of the table has been refined and extended over time, as new elements have been discovered, and new theoretical models have been developed to explain chemical behavior. "Periodic Table."
