With a history of over 300 years, the chemical table is the textbook case of information visualization. This paper explores the development of the chemical table as a tool designed for chemical information visualization. It uses a historical context to investigate the purpose of chemical tables and charts, and suggests reasons why the two-dimensional periodic table remains the de facto standard for chemical information display.
