If you look at the periodic table, you can see an element called 101 Md. It was Mendelevium. The name derived from Dmitri Mendeleev.

EDUCATIONDmitri Mendeleyev was born in Tobolsk, Russia, on February 8, 1834. After receiving an education in science in Russia and Germany, he became a professor and conducted research in chemistry. Mendeleyev is best known for his discovery of the periodic law, which he introduced in 1869, and for his formulation of the periodic table of elements.

EDUCATION/TEACHINGSMendeleyev attended the Main Pedagogical Institute in St. Petersburg and graduated in 1855. After teaching in the Russian cities of Simferopol and Odessa, he returned to St. Petersburg to earn a master's degree. Mendeleyev continued his studies abroad, with two years at the University of Heidelberg.

While he was researching for a book he was writing in the 1860's, Mendeleyev made the discovery that led to his most famous achievement. He noticed certain recurring patterns between different groups of elements and using existing knowledge of the elements' chemical and physical properties, he was able to make further connections. He systematically arranged the dozens of known elements by atomic weight in a grid-like diagram; following this system, he could even predict the qualities of still-unknown elements. In 1869, Mendeleyev formally presented his discovery of the periodic law to the Russian Chemical Society.

By discovering and producing the periodic table, Dmitri Mendeleev gave the science world the key to chemistery.


Dmitri was in charge of measuring vodka in Russia.

Mendeleev was one of the founding members of the Russian Chemical Society and helped open the lines of communications between scientist in Europe and the United States.

He was one of the first modern-day scientists who corresponded with other scientists around the globe to receive data that they had collected rather than depend completely on his own work.
