Such a series, which would be listed in a row below the actinide series in the periodic table, should consist of 32 elements, ending in the neighbourhood of element 153 and resulting primarily from the filling of the 5g and 6f inner electron shells.
The difficulty arises partly because of uncertainty of the exact point at which the energetically similar 5g and 6f orbitals begin to fill and partly because calculations indicate that the 8p and 7d orbitals may be very close in energy to the 5g and 6f orbitals.
The prediction of properties on the basis of an orderly extrapolation appears to be of doubtful validity, however, in this heavy-element region of the periodic table.

  The Conventional Periodic Table of the Elements:
This version presents the two series in between the columns (groups) of the main body of the table, in an apparent effort to emphasize the non-existent relationship among the different groups and the two series.
From the previous examples, translated from the different sources cited for each table, one may observe the disorderly manner in which the Actinide Series and the Lanthanide Series of elements are placed upon the conventional periodic table.
Due to the disorderly manner in which the two series are presented, it is impossible to visualize specific relationships among the elements on the main body of the table in relation to these two series.

 Periodic table - Pharmpedia
The periodic table of the chemical elements, also called the Mendeleev periodic table, is a tabular display of the known chemical elements.
Mendeleev's discovery of the periodic table was one of the greatest developments in modern chemistry; chemists for the first time were able to quantitatively explain the behaviour of the elements and to predict the existence of undiscovered ones.
A group is a vertical column in the periodic table of the elements.

 periodic table. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
In the periodic table the elements are arranged in columns and rows according to increasing atomic number (see the table entitled Periodic Table).
This is in keeping with current interpretations of the periodic law which holds that the elements in a group have similar configurations of the outermost electron shells of their atoms.
The elements of a period are characterized by the fact that they have the same number of electron shells; the number of electrons in these shells, which equals the element’s atomic number, increases from left to right within each period.

 Kids.Net.Au - Encyclopedia > Periodic table   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The periodic table of the chemical elements is a display of the known chemical elements, arranged by electron structure so that many chemical properties vary regularly across the table.
The original table was created without a knowledge of the inner structure of atoms: if one orders the elements by atomic mass, and then plots certain other properties against atomic mass, one sees an undulation or periodicity to these properties as a function of atomic mass.
Despite their dramatic differences in mass within the group, their allotropes have very similar properties: They are all highly corrosive (meaning they combine readily with metals to form metal halide[?] salts); chlorine and fluorine are gases, while bromine is a very low-boiling liquid; chlorine and bromine at least are highly colored.

 EIA Kids Page - A Periodic Table of the Elements
The periodic table is the most important reference a chemist has because it puts all the known elements into a meaningful pattern.
The period number of an element signifies the highest energy level an electron in that element occupies (in the unexcited state).
The number of elements in a period increases as one moves down the periodic table because as the energy level of the atom increases, the number of energy sub-levels per energy level increases.

 The Periodic Table
Some of the families have historical names that pre-date the modern periodic table, since their chemical similarities were noted before the table was widely accepted.
The transition elements are the elements found in the middle region of the periodic table in a rectangle formed with the elements scandium, zinc, actinium, and ununbium at the corners.
Elements in this region of the periodic table are metals with less predictable properties with respect to the periodic properties.

 The Periodic Table
A necessary prerequisite to the construction of the periodic table was the discovery of the individual elements.
In 1898, William Ramsey suggested that argon be placed into the periodic table between chlorine and potassium in a family with helium, despite the fact that argon's atomic weight was greater than that of potassium.
Although Mendeleev's table demonstrated the periodic nature of the elements, it remained for the discoveries of scientists of the 20th Century to explain why the properties of the elements recur periodically.

 Teachers' Domain: Periodic Table of the Elements
At first glance, the periodic table -- that chart that appears on the walls of science classrooms everywhere -- appears to be an oddly shaped collection of chemical information about the elements.
A closer look, however, reveals the source of the table's name: The elements are arranged "periodically;" that is, according to properties that repeat in regular, predictable patterns.
Elements are arranged in the periodic table according to atomic number, from left to right, top to bottom.

Period 4 is elements 19-36, starts with K (2, 8, 8, 1) and Ca (2, 8, 8, 2) and finishes with Kr Note that the number of shells containing electrons is equal to the period number.
The metals in the periodic table are mainly found in the left hand columns (Groups 1 and 2) and in the central blocks of the transition elements.
Period 2 starts with a solid low melting reactive metal lithium, in the middle there are the high melting and rather unreactive non-metals boron and carbon, next to the end is the very highly reactive non-metal gas fluorine, and the period finishes with the very unreactive gas neon.

 Periodic Table of the Elements
The periodic table was invented by the Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleyev (1834-1907), which he published in Principles of Chemistry in 1869.
His periodic table arranged the 63 known chemical elements in order of their atomic mass.
Today, the elements in the periodic table are ordered by their atomic number.

 The Periodic Table
Generally, within a given period, the chemical activity of metals increases with the group number, while the chemical activity of non-metals within a given period decreases with the group number.
The elements classified as "Rare Earth Elements" are located in Group 3 of the Periodic Table and in the 6th and 7th periods.
The standardised periodic table in use today was agreed by the International Union of Pure Applied Chemistry, IUPAC, in 1985 and now recognises more periods and elements than Dimitri Mendeleev knew in his day but still all fitting into his concept of the "Periodic Table".

 Development of Periodic Table
The development of the periodic table begins with German chemist Johann Dobereiner (1780-1849) who grouped elements based on similarities.
Lord Rayleigh (1842-1919) and William Ramsey (1852-1916) greatly enhanced the periodic table by discovering the "inert gases." In 1895 Rayleigh reported the discovery of a new gaseous element named argon.
The last major change to the periodic table resulted from Glenn Seaborg's work in the middle of the 20th century.

 Alternative Periodic Table
The periodic table starts with a single row of two elements, followed by two rows of eight elements, followed by two rows of eighteen elements, followed by two rows of thirty-two elements.
Without knowing either where the table begins or where it ends, we couldn't know whether the inert gases belong at the ends of the rows, as we currently draw the table, or at the beginnings.
Likewise, the chemical "elements" listed in the periodic table are not actually elements of anything except the table itself and supersets of the non-empty subsets of the table.

In the periodic table, the elements are positioned in sequence, right to left, top to bottom, by their proton count.
Some light was shed on the reasons for the periodic table's predictive powers with the discovery of the tendency of atoms to move towards having eight electrons in their outer or valence shells.
Quantum Mechanics was able to explain the the reasons behind the number of elements in each period of the periodic table and even more amazingly, for all of us wishing to understand, explained why molecules bond as they do, particularly those very very long chains of elements that are the building blocks of life.
