The Year of the Periodic Table 2019

The period table is at the heart of everything we do at ANSTO. To celebrate the 150th Anniversary year of the periodic table, we are going to get down to bare basics and highlight just how we use these many elements every day to deliver better health outcomes, understand our environment and support Australian industries with innovations.

Did you know that because ANSTO has the scientific tools to investigate at the scale of the atom, we can track elements through any system on earth? We even produce elements that can be traced through your body. Below you'll find a different element from the Periodic Table each week and its structure, as well as selected learning resources from ANSTO.
