Periodic Table Background – Periodic Table Wallpaper

This colorful periodic table background is an updated version of our popular color periodic table.

Periodic Table - 2017 Edition

The table contains the usual information for each element. It includes each element’s atomic number, symbol, name, and mass with a different color scheme for the different element groups. The key running along the bottom shows which colors go with which groups.

The updates include the four new elements: nihonium (113), moscovium (115), tennessine (117), and oganesson (118). There are also a few minor errors for atomic masses some readers have pointed out. If you spot another one — which I hope you don’t, feel free to comment down below.

If the white background is a little bright for your taste, here is the same table with a black background with contrasting white column label text.
