On top you find the Table of Mendeliev (of Mendeljef), beneath, the properties of the current selected element (inverted box in the table).

You can select a chemical element:

  • using the cursor keys
  • by clicking the element in the table
  • using the popup-menu item : Go to element
  • by clicking then Go to element button (binoculars)

The Presented Properties

Average atomic mass IonCharge Oxidationnumber
Covalent radii ( E ) Electro-negativity 1st Ionisation potential ( in eV )
Density ( 10e3 . kg / m3 ) Specific gravition Specific heat ( Joule / g .0C )
