INTRODUCTION : Periodic table helps us to undergo a systematic study of the various elements found in
nature, Without which it would have been impossible for us to study all the elements. By classifying the elements
into various groups and periods a comparative study of the elements and their compounds can be done. It also
help us to analyze the periodic trend in various properties such as ionization potential, electron affinity, electronegativity etc.
DEVELOPMENT OF PERIODIC TABLE
1 . PROUT'S HYPOTHESIS
He simply assumed that all the elements are made up of hydrogen, so we can say that
Atomic weight of element = n ×  (Atomic weight of one hydrogen atom)
Atomic weight of H = 1 where n = number of hydrogen atom = 1, 2, 3,....
Drawback or Limitation :
(a) Every element can not be formed by Hydrogen.
(b) The atomic weights of all elements were not found as whole numbers.
Ex. Chlorine (atomic weight 35.5) and Strontium (atomic weight 87.5)
2 . DOBEREINER TRIAD RULE
J.W. Dorbereiner pointed out that within a group of three elements having similar chemical and physical properties,
the atomic weight of the middle element is the mean of the other two. Some examples of such triads are given
below. He also pointed out the triad - iron, cobalt and nickel in which the atomic weights of the elements are
almost the same.
Some representative triads of Dobereiner

Mean value          23 88.5 8 0 81.25
Other example. (K, Rb, Cs), (P, As, Sb) (H, F, Cl) (Sc, Y, La).
Though it was the first successful attempt to rationalise the problem, it could not be generalised or extended.
Drawback or Limitation :  All the known elements could not be arranged as triads.
3 . NEWLAND'S OCTET LAW
John Alexander Reina newland in England made the first attempt to correlate the chamical properties of the
elements with their atomic weight. According to him -
(a) If the elements are arranged in order to their increasing atomic weights, every eighth element had similar
properties to first one like the first and eighth  note in music. For example
Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha Ni Sa
Li Be B C N O F Na

JEEMAIN.GURU
(v) Vertical columns are called groups and there were 8 groups in Mendeleev's Periodic table.
(vi) Each group upto VII
th
 is divided into A & B subgroups.'A' sub groups element are called normal elements
and 'B' sub groups elements are called transition elements.
(vii) The VIII
th
 group was consists of 9 elements in three rows (Transitional metals group).
(viii) The elements belonging to same group exhibit similar properties.
(c) Merits or advantages of Mendeleef's periodic table :
(i) Study of elements :  First time all known elements were classified in groups according to their similar
properties. So study of the properties of elements become easier .
(ii) Prediction of new elements : It gave encouragement to the discovery of new elements as some gaps
were left in it.
Sc (Scandium) Ga (Gallium) Ge (Germanium) Tc (Technetium)
These were the elements for whom position and properties were well defined by Mendeleev even before
their discoveries and he left the blank spaces for them in his table.
Ex. Blank space at atomic weight 72 in silicon group was called Eka silicon (means properties like
silicon) and element discovered later was named Germanium .
Similarly other elements discovered after mendeleef periodic tabel were.
Eka aluminium  – Galium(Ga) Eka  Boron  – Scandium (Sc)
Eka Silicon  – Germanium (Ge) Eka Mangense  – Technetium (Tc)
(iii) Correction of doubtful atomic weights : Correction were done in atomic weight of some elements.
 Atomic weight = Valency × Equivalent weight. 
Initially, it was found that equivalent weight of Be is 4.5 and it is trivalent (V = 3), so the weight of Be was
13.5 and there is no space in Mendeleev's table for this element. So, after correction, it was found that
Be is actually divalent (V = 2). So, the weight of Be became 2 × 4.5 = 9 and there was a space between
Li and B for this element in Mendeleev's table.
– Corrections were done in atomic weight of elements are – U, Be, In, Au, Pt.
(d) Defects of Mendeleef's Periodic Table:
(i) Position of hydrogen is uncertain. It has been placed in lA and VII A groups because of its resemblance
with both the groups.
(ii) No separate positions were given to isotopes.
(iii) It is not clear whether the lanthanides and actinides are related to IIA or IIB group.
(iv) Although there is no resemblance except valency of subgroups A and B, they have been put in the same
group.
(v) Order of increasing atomic weights is not strictly followed in the arrangement of elements in the periodic
table. For e.g. – Co (At. wt. 58.9) is placed before I (127) and Ar (39.9) before K (39).

Important Points :
(a) 2
nd
 period elements (Li, Be, B) Shows diagonal relationship with 3rd period elements (Mg, Al, Si) so (Li,
Be, B) are called  Bridge elements. Because of same ionic potential value they shows similarity in properties.
(Ionic potential = Charge/Radius)
Li Be B
Na M g Al Si
(b) 3
rd
 period elements (Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl) are called typical elements because they represent the
properties of other element of their respective group.
(c) Atomic number of last inert gas element is 86.
(d) Number of Gaseous elements – 11 (H, N, O, F, Cl + Noble gases)
Number of Liquid elements – 6 (Cs, Fr, Ga, Hg, Br, Uub)
Bromine is the only non-metal which exists in liquid form.
Number of Solid elements – 95 (if discovered elements are 112)
(e) 2nd period contains maximum number of gaseous elements. They are 4 (N, O, F, Ne)
Nomenclature of elements
(a) IUPAC gave names to elements above atomic number 100 as follows –
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
nil un bi tri quad pent hex sept oct enn
(b) In all the elements, suffix is – ium. Ex.
Atomic No. IUPAC Name Sy mb ol IUPAC Official Name IUPAC Symbol
101 Un nil unium Unu Mendelevium Md
102 Un nil bium Unb Nobelium No
103 Un nil trium Unt Lawrencium Lr
