Ordered elements by atomic weight Ordered elements by atomic weight
Included only the elements known at the Left gaps for elements he predicted
time would be discovered later
Maintained a strict order of atomic Swapped the order of some elements if
weights that fitted their properties better
Every eighth element had similar Elements in groups had similar
properties (Newlands' Law Of Octaves) properties
Was criticised by other scientists for Was seen as a curiosity to begin with,
grouping some elements with others but then as a useful tool when the
when they were obviously very different predicted elements were discovered
