“The Periodic Table” by Primo Levi as seen through the eyes of a chemist »

Nimrod Moiseyev Technion – Israel Institute of Technology

The periodic table is a tabular display organizing the 118 known chemical elements by selected properties of their atomic structure. Since all matter in our world is made of atoms, the periodic table is used by chemists as a guide for the study and understanding of the organization and structure of matter. Primo Levi used in his book the properties of different elements to describe the structure and the dynamical processes in our society, viewed, in particular, from his Jewish perspective.

Nimrod Moiseyev has studied chemistry at Bar-Ilan University and at the Weizmann Institute of Science and received his PhD from Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa. He held a post-doc position at the University of Wisconsin in Madison before returning to Technion where he has been a professor of chemistry since 1988. He has been a visiting professor at Madison, Kaiserslautern, Orsay, Los Angeles, Harvard and Dresden. He has won numerous awards for his work, including the Humboldt Prize, the Marie Curie Prize, the Landau Award and the CMOA medal for his “major contribution to the development of the non-Hermitian theory of quantum mechanics”.
