F. Benedict and W. Atwater, “A Respiration Calorimeter with Appliances for the Direct Determination of Oxygen”, 1902.

F. Benedict and W. Atwater, “A Respiration Calorimeter with Appliances for the Direct Determination of Oxygen”, 1902 was a physiology science publication.  Wilbur Atwater was the first scientist to apply the “conservation of energy” to the human body. Here with a colleague he used “respiratory calorimeter” for the first time in history. Continue reading F. Benedict and W.

Antoine Lavoisier, "Elements of Chemistry", 1789.

    Antoine Lavoisier, ”Elements of Chemistry “, 1789 marks the beginning of modern chemistry. The first list of the periodic chemical elements is in this book. The nomenclature is however what was foundational.  The “SMILES” notation is a recent advance in the Computer Age, that cab be traced to this publication by Lavoisier in … Continue reading Antoine Lavoisier, "Elements of Chemistry", 1789.

Molecular Elements Periodicity

This periodic table contains element letter symbols, plus Chinese language characters. Isotopes of elements are shown in a physical table link at:  Periodicity of Isotopic Elements .  The table style above as opposed to the link is after that of Dimitri Mendeleev original. I like the symbols in the table above with Latin letters equal to … Continue reading Molecular Elements Periodicity
