Dmitri Mendeleev

Dmitri Mendeleev was a Russian chemist and a teacher who devised the periodic table. In 1867, one day after working for three straight days, he got the inspiration from a dream: "Awakening, I immediately wrote it down on a piece of paper.” He named his discovery the “periodic table of the elements.”
