by John Emsley

Here is an easy and amusing way to familiarise yourself with the names of the elements and discover something about the role they play in the modern world.

In these puzzles their names are hidden in a grid that disguises them under other words or phrases. When you have found all the elements their initial letters arrange to spell another word, or they may exhibit some common feature. In either case this is explained on the answer page which follows each puzzle.
