To celebrate the year 2019 being the 150th anniversary of the Periodic Table, CCDC embarked on the International Year of the Periodic Table (IYPT) in Crystals project. We've created a webpage for every element on the Periodic Table. Each webpage has information about the elemental form and an associated chemical compound, the crystal structure of which can be found in the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD). Now we're turning this well of information into a valuable educational resource for anyone who wants to learn more about chemistry.
First up: a set of battlecards to play with friends and family while exploring and learning more about the Periodic Table and the crystal structures in its honour. You can find this activity here.
More resources coming soon!
