Periodic table reference data


This package will create the reference data type “Periodic Table” which contains reference data for the 118 elements of the periodic table.

It contains the elements such as Hydrogen, Hydrogen, Lithium, Beryllium, Boron, etc. For each element, it includes the attributes: atomic number, symbol, group, period, state of matter, conventional atomic weight, electronegativity, and density.

How to use the package

Periodic table elements will be available in the Reference Data module in SLIMS under reference data type “Periodic Table” once the package is installed. The 118 elements will be available as records within the “Periodic Table” reference data type.

Periodic table elements can be used in SLIMS for Dynamic choice field values or as a result value. For example, they can be used to specify if a sample contains certain elements.

Where to Look Next

These references have further information on how to configure or use the package contents after the initial installation and integration.

This package makes use of units from the SI Units package.  The “SI Units” package can be installed alongside this package to get the complete set of units.

This is reference data for the 118 recognized elements from the periodic table.

The reference data has the following fields:

Atomic number –> whole number

Symbol –> string

Group –> whole number

Period –> whole number

State of matter –> fixed choice Gas/Liquid/Solid/NA

Conventional atomic weight –> quantity (Da –> g/mol)

electronegativity –> decimal number

density –> quantity (g/cm3)
