Applet: Phase Transition Temperatures

In this applet you can visualize the melting and boiling temperatures for all elements - where known. Shown is the periodic table, where all elements are color-coded: blue for solids, yellow for liquids, and red for gases. The elelments in white do not have stable isotopes, and their phase transition temperatures are not known.

The applet initially assumes room temperature, 298 K = 25°C. You can change the temperature by pressing the arrow keys on your keyboard ("right": +15 K, "left": -15 K). Of course, you can also adjust the temperature by dragging the temperature slider with your mouse.
