Newlands Project

This project is named in honour of John A.R. Newlands   1837 – 1898
John A.R. Newlands proposed the Law of Octaves in 1864. This law was the basis for Mendeleev’s Periodic Law in 1869 . Newlands gained little recognition in his lifetime for this idea. In fact he was ridiculed for his revolutionary idea. It was his Periodic Law that caused chemists to consider a new SCHEME.
This new scheme led chemistry to many new discoveries

The following stories will be presented in this project
