Spanish Language Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for students, teachers, and linguists wanting to discuss the finer points of the Spanish language. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to know the elements of the periodic table in Spanish, because my parents do not know much about them. I want to be able to describe them a bit about the elements, but I have no background information about the elements.

I found this website called vanderkrogt.net, but it does not look reliable.

(I did recognize oxygen with oxígeno.)

Thanks in advance.

That site is reliable, except that it is a little too liberal in using accented characters: «helio» is «helio» rather than «hélio». Despite all sources using capitalized names in isolation, when used in texts, elements in Spanish are not capitalized. –  Carlos Eugenio Thompson Pinzón Dec 9 '13 at 11:06

Tengo alguna idea al respecto @EmilioGort: es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Especial:Contribuciones/Chlewey , pero el comentario sobre el uso de tildes era con respecto a vanderkrogt.net , sitio sugerido en la pregunta inicial. En cuanto a las mayúsculas no creo que se digno de corregir cuando su uso en textos en Wikipedia es correcto. –  Carlos Eugenio Thompson Pinzón Dec 10 '13 at 1:18
    
@CarlosEugenioThompsonPinzón wow!!! alguna idea...eres un experto...lol, no fue con una intencion negativa... –  Emilio Gort Dec 10 '13 at 1:20

Note that 74 'Wolframio' is also called 'Tungsteno' in spanish, mostly in old texts. –  Envite Dec 9 '13 at 10:05
    
Thank you for your efforts. I'll view over it when I get the chance. –  AppleNuke Dec 9 '13 at 22:44

This is too easy to find in Google, just search for "Tabla Periódica".

Just as an example: http://www.lenntech.es/periodica/tabla-periodica.htm

There are different spellings. Look at Sulfur (16) and Iodine (53). Iodine is Yodo or Iodio. I do not know which. –  AppleNuke Dec 8 '13 at 23:47

So many errors... e.g. 16 is "Azufre" –  Envite Dec 8 '13 at 23:44
    
I found multiple spellings. Including Iodine (which is not listed) Yodo and Iodio. –  AppleNuke Dec 8 '13 at 23:48
    
"Iodine" and "Iodio" are not spanish. "Iodo" and "Yodo" are. –  Envite Dec 9 '13 at 0:05
    
Another one... "Heiro" and "Ferro" are both wrong. It is "Hierro". Simply discard this list. –  Envite Dec 9 '13 at 0:07

I will not make a list for you. Use the answer I provided below: search for "Tabla Periódica". There are so many errors in your list that it is not worth. –  Envite Dec 9 '13 at 0:12
