    Professor Michaele Hardie, Head of Inorganic Chemistry, Leeds University

    2019 is the 150th anniversary of Dmitri Mendeleev's first periodic table, perhaps the most recognisable display of scientific information. Why was it an important breakthrough back in the 1860s? Why does it remain relevant today? Michaele Hardie will explain why the periodic table is much more than a poster on the lab wall and why Mendeleev's insights were important in advancing our understanding of the elements.
