Dmitri Mendeleev’s Works and Achievements Name Institution Dmitri Mendeleev’s Works and Achievements Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev was a scientist from Russia who was born in1834 and died in 1907. His field of specialization was Chemistry and Physics. After earning a doctorate Mendeleev became a professor and taught organic chemistry in various intuitions of higher learning among them Saint Petersburg State University and Saint Petersburg Technological Institute (Heilbronner & Miller 2004). Overly Dmitri made various trials before developing the periodic table and even made further discoveries making him one of the greatest scientists of his time. Trials on the Periodic Table History has it that Mendeleev’s trials on the formulation of the periodic table yielded positive results in a day. Evidently he had dedicated close to thirty years of his life investigating the elements in relation to their properties and atomic weights and he was convinced there chemistry professor and lectured in various institutions such as Saint Petersburg University. It is while researching for lecture material that he discovered the arrangement of elements in the periodic table. He occupied high profile positions such as being the Director of Weights and Measure in Russia in 1894 and being a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. He further received various honorary awards and medals for his works. References Top of Form Bottom of Form Top of Form Bottom of Form Top of Form Bortz F. (2013).
