Description of Early Responses to the Periodic System First Edition (PDF)

Early Responses to the Periodic System by Masanori Kaji, Helge Kragh & Gábor Palló is a great Chemistry book available in (PDF) download. Although a great number of historians have studied Mendeleev’s discovery of the periodic system of chemical elements, few have looked at how the scientific community has perceived and employed this system in various areas of the world. Early Responses to the Periodic System book fills this gap. In addition, for the evaluation of the periodic system, this Early Responses to the Periodic System book looks not only at scientific communities but also in the educational sector and local popular culture. The idea of a comparative project on the early reception of the periodic system occurred to one of the editors (Masanori Kaji) during the 6th Science and Technology in the European Periphery (STEP) meeting in Istanbul on June 2008.

Gestated under the warm sunny skies in Istanbul, this idea materialized into a book project thanks to many colleagues who are also interested in the history of chemistry. The contributors and editors, especially Masanori Kaji, wish to express special thanks to Brigitte Van Tiggelen, Carsten Reinhardt, William Brock, Michael Gordin, and Eric Scerri, who were of immense help during the various stages of the project.
