Julius Lothar von Meyer (August 19, 1830 - April 11, 1895) was a German chemist. He was one of the pioneers in developing the first periodic table of chemical elements.
Lothar Meyer used physical properties such as atomic volume, melting point, boiling point, etc., to arrive at his table of elements. He showed that when the properties of the elements such as atomic volume, melting point, boiling point etc., are plotted as a function of their atomic weights, the elements with similar properties occupied almost similar positions.
