The new look periodic table

A new version of the periodic table has been published. The European Chemical Society, which represents more than 160,000 scientists, has compiled it to highlight the remaining availability of some 90 elements and their vulnerability as industry continues to devour the world's resources. Of particular note are specific elements which are used in the manufacture of phones and other electronic devices. Professor David Cole-Hamilton is vice president of the European Chemical Society.
