The Photographic Periodic Table

This is much more exciting than the dull poster that TOTD used to stare at during double chemistry each Saturday morning. The site is richly illustrated and the facts accompanying each element are facinating. Did you know that liquid oxgen at -183 degree C is a beautiful pale blue? Many elements are difficult, or impossible, to display. Just read what it takes to make a transparent container to display highly reactive fluorine.
