Metals of nrwlands alkalies: The differences between the numbers of the other members of a group are frequently twice as lass thus in the nitrogen group, between N and P there are 7 elements; between P and As, 13; between As and Sb, 14; and between Sb and Bi, However, the Law of Octaves was ridiculed by some of Newlands’ contemporaries, and the Society of Chemists did not accept his work for publication.

B 11 Au III. I now subjoin a few explanatory remarks on the different groups contained in the above table, the number attached to each group being merely for the purpose of reference. Lithium 7 Potassium 39 32 2 Magnesium 24 Cadmium 88 5. He used the values accepted by his predecessors.

In conclusion, I may mention that the equivalents I have adopted in this letter were taken from the highly-interesting and important paper by Professor Williamson, lately published in the Journal of the Chemical Society.

In this group, bromine is the mean between chlorine and iodine. Dumas in particular, have, on several occasions, pointed out some very interesting relations between the equivalents of bodies belonging to the same natural family or group; and my present purpose is simply to endeavour to proceed a little further in the same direction. Thallium, in its physical properties, bears some resemblance to lead, and it frequently happens that similar terms taken from different groups, such as oxygen and nitrogen, or sulphur and phosphorus, bear more physical resemblance to each other than they do to the members of the groups to which, for chemical reasons we are compelled to assign them.

Now, if the law of “Studiosus” had any real existence, the above facts would resolve themselves into particular cases of its application. He was home-schooled by his father, and later studied at the Royal College of Chemistry.

Case Studies in the Development of Chemistry. Accessed 5 February Iron is one-half of cadmium.

Later he quit the refinery and again became an analyst with his brother, Benjamin. The incompleteness of the table alluded to the possible existence of additional, undiscovered elements. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


It will be observed that the difference between the equivalents of tellurium and osmium, caesium, and thallium, and barium and lead, respectively, is the same in each case–viz.

Of this relation I append a few examples: In he became chief chemist of James Duncan’s London sugar refinerywhere he introduced a number of improvements in processing. While upon the subject of “relations among the equivalents,” I may observe that the most important of these may be seen at a glance in the following table: I may mention, by the way, that platinum is rather more than the half of gold; thus Between magnesium and cadmium, the extremities of this group, zinc is the mean.

He was interested in social reform and during served as a volunteer with Giuseppe Garibaldi in his military campaign to unify Italy.

In this group the difference between tin and titanium is nearly three times as great as that between titanium and silicon. Lead is here the mean of the other two. If we deduct the member of a group having the lowest equivalent from that immediately above it, we frequently observe that the numbers thus obtained bear a simple relation to each other, as in the following examples: Views Read Edit View history.

Aluminium also is one-half of manganese, which, with iron and chromium, forms sesquioxides, isomorphous, with alumina. In order to avoid the frequent repetition of the word “equivalent,” I have generally used the names of the different elements as representing their equivalent numbers–thus, when I say that zinc is the mean of magnesium and cadmium, I intend to imply that the equivalent of zinc is the mean of those of magnesium and cadmium, and so on, throughout the paper: The analogous term in the chlorine group is not yet known.

In like manner, ee we include lithium, we shall have pey the metals of the alkaline earths two triads, the first comprising lithium, magnesium, and calcium, and the second calcium, strontium, and barium, calcium standing at the top of one triad and at the bottom of the other.

The numbers thus obtained in the different triads correspond to a great extent. The difference between the highest octvaas of the platinum group, viz.

For if “the atomic weights are multiples of eight,” any differences between them must also be divisible by eight. Thus, in the nitrogen group, between nitrogen and phosphorus there are 7 elements; between phosphorus and arsenic, 14; between arsenic and antimony, 14; and lastly, between antimony and bismuth, 14 also.

Metals whose protoxides are isomorphous with magnesia: SIR,– In addition to the facts stated in my late communication, may I be permitted to observe lye if the elements are arranged in the order of their equivalents, calling hydrogen 1, lithium 2, glucinum 3, boron 4, and so on a separate number being attached to each element having a distinct equivalent of octavaz own, and where two elements happen to have the same equivalent, both being designated by the same numberit will be observed that elements having consecutive numbers frequently either belong to the same group or occupy similar positions in different groups, as in the following examples: The relations, then, will be thus: After Dmitri Mendeleev and Lothar Nnewlands received the Davy Medal from the Royal Society for their later ‘discovery’ of the periodic table, Newlands fought for recognition of his earlier work and eventually received the Davy Medal in In this group, strontium is the mean of newlabds and barium.


On the Law of Octaves. If the elements are arranged in the order of their equivalents, with a few slight transpositions, as in the accompanying table, it will be observed that elements belonging to the same group usually appear on the same horizontal line.

In conclusion, I may remark that just as we have several newwlands of the apparent existence of triads, ,as extremities of which are known, whilst their centres are wanting such as the metals of the platinum group, which may be conceived to be the extremities of three distinct triads, and perhaps also silver and gold may be related to each other in this mannerso we may look upon certain of the elements, e. The element lead occupies a position in relation to the metals of the alkaline earths similar to that filled by thallium in the group of alkali metals.

This peculiar relationship I propose to provisionally term the “Law of Octaves”. So frequently are relations to be met with among the equivalents of allied newlanvs, that we may almost predict that the next equivalent leey, that of indium, for instance, will be found to bear a simple relation to those of the group to which it will be assigned.

Cobalt and nickel are identical. If you know of an interesting periodic table that is missing, please contact the kas curator: It was written by a reporter whose name I do not have; it is not in Newlands’ words. Periodic tablelaw of octaves. Potassium is thus the highest term of one triad and the lowest term of another.
