A Short History of Nearly Everything by American author Bill Bryson is a popular science book that explains some areas of science, using easily accessible language that appeals more so to the general public than many other books dedicated to the subject.
Analytical chemistry is the study of the separation, identification, and quantification of the chemical components of natural and artificial materials.
A chemical element (or element) is a chemical substance consisting of atoms having the same number of protons in their atomic nuclei (i.e. the same atomic number, Z).
The Davy Medal is awarded by the Royal Society of London "for an outstandingly important recent discovery in any branch of chemistry".
In the history of the periodic table, Döbereiner's triads were an early attempt at sorting in an orderly fashion the most important of all the chemical elements by certain physical properties.
The Dictionary of National Biography (DNB) is a standard work of reference on notable figures from British history, published from 1885.

In the periodic table of the elements, elements are arranged in a series of rows (or periods) so that those with similar properties appear in a column.
The periodic table is a tabular arrangement of the chemical elements, ordered by their atomic number (number of protons in the nucleus), electron configurations, and recurring chemical properties.
