As science advances, its laws become fewer but of greater scope. In this respect the Periodic Law, which is the basis of the Periodic Table, represents a major step in the progress of chemistry — it affords the natural classification of the elements. The Periodic Table was developed by chemists more than one hundred years ago as a correlation for the properties of the elements. With the discovery of the internal structure of the atom, it became recognized by physicists as a natural law. When the crystalline structure of solids was studied, the nature of the chemical bonds was understood, and the theory of metals was put forward, it became an essential tool not only for chemists and physicists, but for metallurgists as well. Numbering the groups in the Periodic Table has been abandoned and descriptive names have been given instead.
  • Metals. Nonmetals,
  • Metalloids,
  • Typical metals,
  • Less-typical metals,
  • Transition metals,
  • Inner transition metals,
  • Lanthanides,
  • Actinides
