Interactive new periodic table of elements  

Did you ever wonder what krypton really is, or some unusual uses for gold, silver and platinum?

Wonder no more as UQ’s School of Earth Sciences has launched a dynamic new periodic table of elements site for students, teachers and the community.

The online tool features 109 elements and is a useful starting point for students who can click on an element, see an image, and learn fun facts and the element’s role in the table.

The American Chemical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry supplied technical information and data.
