At age 16, he moved to St Petersburg, Russia, which was the capital of Russia at the time. There he won a place in his fathers college where he trained to be a teacher.In 1855, age 21, Mendeleev took a job teaching science at Simferopolbut soon returned to St Petersburg. He studied for a masters degreein chemistry. He was rewarded his degree in 1856. Mendeleev was certain that better, more fundamental principals couldbe found. This was his mindset in 1869. He began writing a secondvolume of his book "The Principles of Chemistry". At the heart of chemistry were its elements. Mendeleev wondered what could revealto him another way of organizing them logically. He wrote all of the elements down and saw that the atomic weight was important somehow,the behavior of the elements seemed to repeat as their atomic weight increased, but he could not see the pattern. Mendeleev would sometimes work until he fell asleep. When he woke up, he found that his subconsciousmind had done the work for him. Dmitri Mendeleev died in St Petersburg, February 1, 1907, six days before his 73rd birthday. He was killed by Influenza. "In a dream I saw a table where all the elements fell into place as required. Awakening, I immediately wrote down on a piece of paper" Dmitri Mendeleev. Work Cited: "Dmitri Mendeleev" Famous Scientist. N.P., Web. 13 Jan. 2015.
