The (truly) Periodic Table is an animated film that tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the Periodic Table: why it has this form, how the elements are organized, how they combine or … not really!


The (truly) Periodic Table is part of The Chemistry of Things project. It was produced by the Science Office for the University of Aveiro, in the framework of the International Year of Chemistry 2011 and funded by COMPETE – Competitive Factors Operational Programme and by Ciência Viva, Media Science Programme.
