The Neutronic Schemata of the Elements, represents a neutronic periodic table of the elements. The neutronic schemata offer an original format that reveals previously unidentified patterns of centro-symmetry and planar symmetry within the behavior of the elements and their atoms. The neutronic count of the atoms reveals a neutronic periodicity that divides the elements into twenty distinct groups, based upon the pattern of sameness for the first twenty elements. Some of the elements within the first twenty representative elements have respectively an equal number of protons, electrons and neutrons, which determines some of the characteristics and properties of the elements.

The traditional periodic table of the elements is generally based upon the electronic configuration of the atoms, which is held to determine the characteristics and properties of the elements. The new format of the neutronic schemata of the elements reveals the possibility, that neutronic periodicity acts in manner similar to electronic periodicity in determining certain characteristics of the elements. The schema design overcomes the dismembered format of the traditional periodic table, thereby producing patterns of centro-symmetry and planar symmetry, which are unavailable on the periodic table currently in use. Color-coded patterns appear on the neutronic schemata, revealing original patterns of symmetry among the elements based upon the concept of neutronic periodicity.

Neutronic periodicity is a new concept as employed in the schema which gives rise to distinct groupings of the elements from that visualized on the conventional table. Data and values that appear to be random or disorganized on the old table, once transferred onto the format of the neutronic schema, reveal symmetries that have gone untreated to date in the literature in chemistry and physics. The conventional periodic table does not generally attempt to visualize a pattern within the neutronic count of the elements. The neutronic schemata, however, reveal definite patterns of symmetry and regularity among the elements and their atoms, which recapture some of the predictive power of the periodic table.

The Neutronic Schemata of the Elements shall be presented by Charles William Johnson at Pittcon 2002, at 4:45PM on March 19, 2002 in the session, "Teaching: Innovative Approaches in Science" Education, to be held in Room 235 of the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
