Isotopes Matter!! New Interactive Periodic Table
In partnership with researchers at the King’s Centre for Visualization in Science, a team of IUPAC scientists and educators has created new IUPAC interactive electronic periodic table. The accompanying educational materials inform students and the general public about the many uses of isotopes in our lives. Following the global launch on August 17, 2016, the new IUPAC interactive electronic periodic table and accompanying resources can be accessed at www.isotopesmatter.com. A print version of the periodic table of the isotopes and elements is available at http://ciaaw.org/periodic-table-isotopes.htm. Further details will be published in the peer-reviewed IUPAC Journal, Pure and Applied Chemistry.
