GROUP 18 CENTERED PERIODIC TABLE WITH ENHANCED INTERPRETATIONS IN CHEMICAL, PHARMACEUTICAL AND LIFE SCIENCES Walisinghe Pathirana The periodic table was dissected between groups 12 and 13 followed by realigning groups 1 and 18 next to each other while ensuring proper sequencing of atomic numbers. The table now assumed a peak form. All the important elements in chemical, pharmaceutical and life sciences were captured around the peak within a v-shaped area near the table center. A useful bilateral feature emerged with elements having broadly different properties lying on either side of group 18. The new periodic table was found to represent a replica of a cross section of the earth’s crust and to some extent advanced animal forms. A well-defined position was identified for atomic number 0 assigned with symbol 0Ec. The scope for new interpretations in chemical, pharmaceutical and life sciences are possible to a greater depth and clarity.
