Abstract

The bicentenary of Dalton's paper, in which he set out his first “Table of the relative weights of the ultimate particles of gaseous and other bodies”, provides us with the opportunity to reflect upon Dalton's life and achievements, to place his Atomic Theory in the context of its antecedents and to consider the views of some of his immediate successors.
