This reference work describes comprehensively, compactly and precisely the history, properties, production and application of all elements of the periodic table. Particular attention is paid to the chemical compounds of the elements, which are also presented extensively. This book contains 23 chapters, each of which includes the elements in the form of subchapters
  • of the eight main groups,
  • the first and second as well as the fourth to tenth subgroups,
  • the rare earth metals and the third subgroup
  • as well as the actinides.
Finally, there is an outlook on the as yet undiscovered elements of the eighth and ninth periods, on alternative, more environmentally friendly drives for motor vehicles such as batteries and fuel cells, as well as on semiconductor technology, i.e. areas that will continue to see increasing research activity in the future. Whenever possible, the author has always maintained the order of chalcogenides, halides, pnictogenides, and other compounds when presenting the chemical compounds of the elements.
The introductory part, which illuminates the history of the respective element, often contains biographies of well-known researchers whose creative periods range from the near past to the Middle Ages. You will not only find portraits of chemists, but also of nuclear physicists, astronomers and medical doctors.
