    No, Hans.
    You are thinking of The Periodic Kingdom (by Peter Atkins), of which I have a copy!

    This thread is Yet Another Example of how a whimsical comment by one member prompts me to retrieve and re-read an excellent book, thus illuminating my life.

    For which, Much Thanks.

    The table stops at element #111. Elements #112-#119 have been synthesized and detected, but only in extremely small amounts. Either the person who created the table in the picture didn't know about those, or didn't bother including them.
