Born in Russia on February 8, 1834, Dmitri Mendeleyev was a Russian chemist who developed the periodic classification of the elements. In his version of the periodic table, he left gaps in places where he believed unknown elements would fit in and predicted the likely properties of three of the potential elements. The proof of many of his predictions within his lifetime brought fame to Mendeleyev as the founder of the periodic law. Mendeleyev died in Russia on February 2, 1907.
