Providing an unusual perspective on the chemical elements, the Chemistry Societies’ Network presents a stunning visual tour of the elements (109 in all) as seen through the eyes of artists. Pick an element, from hydrogen to meitnerium, to see the image it suggested to an artist and, as a bonus, learn a little about the element’s history and characteristics. The site also features a series of striking, computer-generated landscapes based on various patterns and relationships, involving properties such as ionization energy and density, within the periodic table.
