Scientist Contribution to the development of the periodic table

Greek thinkers Things are different from each other, and each can be reduced to very small parts of itself. - Ancient knowledge

This was noticed early by people, and Greek thinkers, about 400 BC, used the words ‘element’, and ‘atom’ to describe the differences and smallest parts of matter. These ideas survived for 2000 years while Aristotle’s concepts, such as ‘elements’ of Earth, Fire, Air, and Water to explain ‘world stuff’, came and went

Lavoisier It was Lavoisier who wrote the first extensive list of elements - containing 33 elements. He distinguished between metals and non-metals, dividing the few elements known in the 1700's into four classes.
