John Newlands (chemist)

The differences between the numbers of the other members of a group are frequently twice as great; thus in the nitrogen group, between N and P there are 7 elements; between P and As, 13; between As and Sb, 14; and between Sb and Bi, Cobalt and nickel are identical. After Dmitri Mendeleev and Lothar Meyer received the Davy Medal from the Royal Society for their later ‘discovery’ of the periodic table, Newlands fought for recognition of his earlier work and eventually received the Davy Medal in In this group selenium is the mean between sulphur and tellurium.

He was home-schooled by his father, and later studied at the Royal College of Chemistry.

Seeing dd word octave applied to this table may lead one to think that Newlands recognised periods of eight elements with repeating properties, as we do with the modern periodic table, for example: He used the values accepted by his predecessors. Picture of John Newlands.

The analogous term kctavas the chlorine group is not yet known. Highest Term of Triad. Highest term of triad. Now, if the law of “Studiosus” had any real existence, the above facts would resolve themselves into particular cases of its application. It will be observed that the difference between the ictavas of tellurium and osmium, caesium, and thallium, and barium and lead, respectively, is the same in each case–viz.

However, the Law of Octaves was ridiculed by some of Newlands’ contemporaries, and the Society of Chemists did not accept his work for publication. This peculiar relationship I propose to provisionally term the “Law of Octaves”. On the Law of Octaves.

This free, open access web book is an ongoing project and your input is appreciated. The numbers thus obtained in the different triads correspond to a great extent.

I may mention, by the way, that platinum is rather more than the half of gold; thus In this group the first three are identical, or nearly so, and are rather more than half of the other two. In order to avoid the frequent repetition of the word “equivalent,” I have generally used the names of the different elements as representing their equivalent numbers–thus, when I say that zinc is the mean of magnesium and cadmium, I intend to imply that the equivalent of zinc is the mean of those of magnesium and cadmium, and so on, throughout the paper: We have here the symbols and the atomic weights of sixty-one elements, octacas in their numerical order, and in the third column is the difference between each atomic weight and the one immediately preceding it: Metals of the earths: So frequently are relations to be met with among the equivalents of allied elements, that we may almost predict that the next equivalent determined, that of indium, for instance, dd be found to bear a simple relation to those of the group to which it will be assigned.


The relations, then, will be thus: Exceptions there are, however, in both cases which render it necessary to take one half or one quarter of the equivalent of oxygen in the one case, and of hydrogen in the other, in order to represent all the numbers obtained as multiples by fe whole number of the given standard. Thus, in the nitrogen group, between nitrogen and phosphorus there are 7 elements; between phosphorus and arsenic, 14; between arsenic and antimony, 14; and lastly, between antimony and bismuth, 14 also.

The difference between the highest member of the platinum group, viz.

Leach, the author, using mrl meta-synthesis. This page was last edited on 13 Decemberat B 11 Au III. Dumas in particular, have, on several occasions, pointed out some very interesting relations between the equivalents of bodies belonging to the same natural family or group; and my present purpose is simply to endeavour to proceed a little further in the same direction.

In this group arsenic is the mean between phosphorus and antimony. LambethSurreyEngland. Osmium appears to play a similar part in the sulphur group, and bismuth in the phosphorus group. Thallium, in its physical properties, bears some resemblance to lead, and it frequently happens that similar terms taken from different groups, such as oxygen and nitrogen, or sulphur and phosphorus, bear more physical resemblance to each other than they do to the members of the groups to which, for chemical reasons we are compelled to assign them.


In this group, bromine is the mean between chlorine and iodine.

Before proceeding any further, I may also remark, that in the difficult task of grouping the elementary ee, I have been guided more by chemical characteristics than by physical appearances, and have, therefore, taken no notice of the ordinary distinction between metals and non-metallics. Groups were shown going across the table, with Periods going down — the opposite from the modern form of the periodic table.

The element lead occupies a position in relation to the metals of the alkaline earths similar to d filled by thallium in the group of alkali metals. In he became chief chemist of James Duncan’s London sugar refinerywhere he introduced a number of improvements in processing. I also freely admit that some of the relations above pointed out are more apparent than real; others, I trust, will prove of a more durable and satisfactory description.

I must, however, premise that many of the observations here collected together are well known already, and are only embodied in my communication for the purpose of rendering it more complete. Read more about Newland’s Octavesincluding a commentry on the origional papers in Carmen Giunta’s Elements and Atoms: Dumas has pointed out between the members of this group are well known; a slight alteration must be made, owing to the atomic weight of caesium having been raised.

His business was continued after his death by his younger brother, Benjamin. If the elements are arranged in the order of their equivalents, with a few slight transpositions, as in the als table, it will be observed that elements belonging to the same group usually appear on the same horizontal line. Lanthanium and didymium are identical with cerium, or nearly so. Metals of the alkalies:
