The Periodic Table-Key Questions • What is the periodic table ? • What information is obtained from the table ? • How can elemental properties be predicted based on the Periodic Table?
The development of the periodic table brought a system of order to what was otherwise an collection of thousands of pieces of information The periodic table is a milestone in the development of modern chemistry. It not only brought order to the elements but it also enabled scientists to predict the existence of yet undiscovered elements. Periodic Table
Early Attempts to Classify Elements • Dobreiner’s Triads (1827) • Classified elements in sets of three having similar properties. • Found that the properties of the middle element were approximately an average of the other two elements in the triad.
Dobreiner’s Triads Note: In each case, the numerical values for the atomic mass and density of the middle element are close to the averages of the other two elements
Newland’s Octaves -1863 • John Newland attempted to classify the then 62 known elements of his day. • He observed that when classified according to atomic mass, similar properties appeared to repeat for about every eighth element • His Attempt to correlate the properties of elements with musical scales subjected him to ridicule. • In the end his work was acknowledged and he was vindicated with the award of the Davy Medal in 1887 for his work.
Dmitri Mendeleev Dmitri Mendeleev is credited with creating the modern periodic table of the elements. He gets the credit because he not only arranged the atoms, but he made predictions based on his arrangement which were shown to be quite accurate.
Mendeleev’s Periodic Table • Mendeleev organized all of the elements into one comprehensive table. • Elements were arranged in order of increasing mass. • Elements with similar properties were placed in the same row.
Mendeleev’s Periodic Table Mendeleev left some blank spaces in his periodic table. At the time the elements gallium and germanium were not known. He predicted their discovery and estimated their properties
Periodic Table The Periodic Table has undergone several modifications before it evolved in its present form. The current form is usually attributed to Glenn Seaborg in 1945
Periodic Table Expanded View • The Periodic Table can be arranged by energy sub levels The s-block is Group IA and & IIA, the p-block is Group IIIA - VIIIA. The d-block is the transition metals, and the f-block are the Lanthanides and Actinide metals • The way the periodic table usually shown is a compressed view. The Lanthanides and actinides (F block)are cut out and placed at the bottom of the table.

The Three Broad Classes Are Main, Transition, Rare Earth • Main (Representative), Transition metals, • lanthanides and actinides (rare earth)
Reading the Periodic Table: Classification • Nonmetals, Metals, Metalloids, Noble gases

Periodic Table Organization------ Groups or Families Vertical columns in the periodic table are known as groups or families The elements in a group have similar electron configurations
Periodic Table Organization ---- Periods Horizontal Rows in the periodic table are known as Periods The Elements in a period undergo a gradual change in properties as one proceeds from left to right
Periodic Properties • Elements show gradual changes in certain physical properties as one moves across a period or down a group in the periodic table. These properties repeat after certain intervals. In other words they are PERIODIC Periodic properties include: -- Ionization Energy --Electronegativity -- Electron Affinity -- Atomic Radius -- Ionic Radius
Trends in Ionization Energy Ionization energy is the energy required to Remove an electron from an atom • Ionization energy increases across a period because the positive charge increases. • Metals lose electrons more easily than nonmetals. • Nonmetals lose electrons with difficulty (they like to GAIN electrons).
Trends in Ionization Energy • The ionization energy increases UP a group • Because size increases due to an effect known as the Shielding Effect
Electronegativity Electronegativity is a measure of the ability of an atom in a molecule to attract electrons to itself. This concept was first proposed by Linus Pauling (1901-1994). He later won the Nobel Prize for his efforts
Periodic Trends: Electronegativity • In a group: Atoms with fewer energy levels can attract electrons better (less shielding). So, electronegativity increases UP a group of elements. • In a period: More protons, while the energy levels are the same, means atoms can better attract electrons. So, electronegativity increases RIGHT in a period of elements.
Electron Affinities Are Periodic • Electron Affinity v Atomic Number
The Electron Shielding Effect • Electrons between the nucleusand the valence electrons repel each other making the atom larger.
Atomic Radius • The radius increases on going down a group. • Because electrons are added further from the nucleus, there is less attraction. This is due to additional energy levels and the shielding effect. Each additional energy level “shields” the electrons from being pulled in toward the nucleus. • The radius decreases on going across a period.
Atomic Radius The radius decreases across a period owing to increase in the positive charge from the protons. Each added electron feels a greater and greater + charge because the protons are pulling in the same direction, where the electrons are scattered. Large Small
Trends in Ion Sizes Radius in pm
Cations Cations (positive ions) are smaller than their corresponding atoms
Ion Sizes Does the size go up or down when gaining an electron to form an anion?
+ + Li , 78 pm 2e and 3 p Ionic Radius Forming a cation. • CATIONS are SMALLER than the atoms from which they come. • The electron/proton attraction has gone UP and so the radius DECREASES. Li,152 pm 3e and 3p
Ionic Radius for Cations Positve ions or cations are smaller than the corresponding atoms. Cations like atoms increase as one moves from top to bottom in a group.
Anions Anions (negative ions) are larger than their corresponding atoms
- - F 64 pm F , 133 pm 9e- and 9p+ 10 e- and 9 p+ Ionic Radius-Anions • ANIONS are LARGER than the atoms from which they come. • The electron/proton attraction has gone DOWN and so size INCREASES. • Trends in ion sizes are the same as atom sizes. Forming an anion.
Ionic Radii for Anions Negative ions or anions are larger than the corresponding atoms. Anions like atoms increase as one moves from top to bottom in a group.
Ionic Radius for an Isoelectronic Group Isoelectronic ions have the same number of electrons. The more negative an ion is the larger it is and vice versa.
The D Block Elements • The d block elements fall between the s block and the p block. • They share common characteristics since the orbitals of d sublevel of the atom are being filled.
The D Block Elements • The D block elements include the transition metals. The transition metals are those d block elements with a partially filled d sublevel in one of its oxidation states. • Since the s and d sublevels are very close in energy, the d block elements show certain special characteristics including: • Multiple oxidation states • The ability to form complex ions • Colored compounds • Catalytic behavior • Magnetic properties
