A few of the articles from this week's issue of Chemical and Engineering News

  1. Did the letter bother anyone else as much as it did me? I thought the Periodic Table was primarily classifying elements on chemical behavior (after atomic number of course) and not on electron configuration. He doesn't behave like an alkaline earth metal - it behaves like a noble gas - and so a table that classifies it as an alkaline earth (above Be) and not as a noble gas (above Ne) seems misleading.
