Here’s a collection of black and white periodic table of elements for you. These are ideal if you don’t have access to a color printer, find the colors distracting or hard to read, or just feel like coloring in element cells yourself.
IUPAC Black and White Periodic Table
This handy table lists all the important periodic table data, such as element names, element symbols, atomic numbers, element groups, and the latest IUPAC atomic masses for the elements. Each atomic mass is cited with the highest number of significant figures. This table is also available as a PDF file for easy downloading and printing.

Black and White Periodic Table with Oxidation States
This printable periodic table lists the usual essential element information, plus the most common oxidation states of each element are also cited. Grab the image or get the PDF or color file.
Black and White Periodic Table with Electron Configurations
This printable table includes the electron shell configurations for each element, so you don’t need to figure it out (or to check your work). It’s also available in a color version or as a PDF file.
Black and White Element Cells
If you need individual element tiles, these are also available as black and white images. The sample cell for helium is shown, but all of the elements are available.
