Julius Lothar Meyer


  Professor of chemistry at Breslau and Tübingen. Codiscoverer with Mendeleev of the periodic arrangement of the elements. Meyer’s approach was based more on physical properties, such as atomic volume and electrochemical behavior, whereas Mendeleev’s idea was to arrange the elements in a descriptive table reflecting their valence patterns. Mendeleev’s approach proved to be more useful and he is generally credited with the concept of the modern periodic table.
