One of the first printed copies of the table of chemical elements of Dmitri Mendeleev, chemical experiments and master-classes on photo printing are shown in the program of the event in honor of the 150th anniversary of Periodic Table, which is held by London Science Museum on April 24. The current year has been declared the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements, Afisha Londona reports. 

The event is free to enter. The participants of the anniversary evening will see a printed copy of the Periodic Table created in 1869. It will be possible to get acquainted with the collection of the nephew of Napoleon Louis Lucien Bonaparte, who collected more than 50 elements. 

The artist Almudena Romero will teach visitors to print photos on living leaves using chlorophyll and solar energy. An installation was created in the museum exclusively for the event in order to familiarize guests with the unusual features of chemicals. 

Russkiy Mir reported that the oldest copy of Periodic Table was discovered in Scotland a few months ago. Later, this information was refuted at Saint Petersburg State University, saying that the oldest copy is kept at the University. The copy was created under the personal instructions of Dmitri Mendeleev.
