The periodic table is an organized chart of displaying the chemical elements created by a Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869. Dmitri Mendeleev had a strong interest in chemistry at an early age. He attended many schools and eventually, in March 6, 1869, he developed a presentation to show to the Russian Chemical Society.dmitri_picture.gif The presentation stated that the table would consist of the groups alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, halogens, and noble gases. He arranged the elements into groups-a column in the periodic table of the elements and into periods- a row in the periodic table of the elements. The layout of the table has been changed and extended over time, as new elements have been discovered.
