Facts and Info about the element Hassium - IUPAC and the Modern Standardised Periodic Table
The Standardised Periodic Table in use today was agreed by the International Union of Pure Applied Chemistry, IUPAC, in 1985 which includes the Hassium element. The famous Russian Scientist, Dimitri Mendeleev, perceived the correct classification method of "the periodic table" for the 65 elements which were known in his time. Hassium was discovered by Peter Armbruster and Gottfried Münzenberg at the Institute for Heavy Ion Research at Darmstadt, Germany in 1984. The Standardised Periodic Table now recognises more periods and elements than Dimitri Mendeleev knew in his day but still all fitting into his concept of the "Periodic Table" in which Hassium is just one element that can be found.
