    HE CLASSIFIED ELEMENTS BY presenting a graph between atomic volume and atomic weight. but his theory of graph was converted into a table by mendeleev. lothar's theory showed that elements of similar properties occupy same place in the graph.e.g, halogens at the top and alkaline earth metals below

    Do you have a link to a site that illustrates this concept, or references to any published work?

    Thanks.

    the lothar-meyer concept is a part of my 11 class syllabi, so i think he was the main man who should have been credited for periodic classification idea.

    Yes, but he didn't arrange it into a table in which it was much easier to predict the discovery of other elements, did he? I think he can be credited with part of the classification.

    another way to arrange the elements is with the periodic galaxy

    The problem with Meyer's was that it wasn't classified by atomic mass, buy by valence alone. I'm reading the history on it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History...periodic_table

    Which is why Mendeleev's table is much easier to understand.
