Did you know that the 3D Periodic Table DeskTopperŪ
is the natural way of displaying the chemical elements?

The improved 3D periodic table eliminates the confusion and inconsistencies of the flat table. As you can see in the image on the left, it arranges the elements in order with successive elements touching. This keeps the accepted groups and families together. Three parts loop outwards from a middle area to form the 3D Periodic Table DeskTopperŪ.

The narrowest and tallest section elements are the Groups 0, Ia, IIa, IIIb, IVb, Vb, and VIIIb. This forms a tube (at left, foreground), topped by a `crown' of Hydrogen. From the lower part of this branches a The longer loop shows groups IIIa, IVa, Va, VIa, VIIa, VIII, Ib, and IIb (left segment). The Rare Earths (right segment) forms the longest loop - the f-block. The successive element connections are achieved by the patented downward helix - including the Hydrogen 'crown'. Notice the superior position given to Hydrogen, suggesting its multiple relationships and recently upgraded importance.

The most useful feature for teaching new students - aside from the motivation gained by the unique & attractive shape - is the unprecedented logic of integration of the Rare Earth and Transition elements (left segment), usually found in a remote location on standard charts.
