Facts about Manganese - Element included on the Periodic Table
Facts about the Definition of the Element Manganese
The Element Manganese is defined as...
A gray-white or silvery brittle metallic element, occurring in several allotropic forms, found worldwide, especially in the ores pyrolusite and rhodochrosite and in nodules on the ocean floor. It is alloyed with steel to increase strength, hardness, wear resistance, and other properties and with other metals to form highly ferromagnetic materials.
Interesting Facts about the Origin and Meaning of the element name Manganese
What are the origins of the word Manganese ?
The Name Originates from the Latin word mangnes meaning magnet.
Facts about the Classification of the Element Manganese
Manganese is classified as a "Transition Metal" which are located in Groups 3 - 12 of the Periodic Table. An Element classified as a Transition Metals is ductile, malleable, and able to conduct electricity and heat.

Facts and Info about the element Manganese - 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 Manganese 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. The Discoverer of the Manganese element was Johann Gahn in 1774. 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 Manganese is just one element that can be found.
