The current popular version has proven quite adequate for many scientists even with a stubborn adherence to the stoic spdf-quantum-theory. Thus, this perspective requires that H be placed over Li and/or F even though it has little or no chemical similarity to either of them. This view of the electron structure of atoms also requires a number of “rules”,”spin-reversal-pairingl”, and “orbital hybridization” to explain even the simplest aspects surrounding the electron structure and chemical bonding; mathematical orthogonality between periodic levels is a sham; and increasingly weirder shaped orbitals are needed to make the math fit the stoic spdf model. Transition and rare-earth/lanthanide series appear without physical rationale. In light of all these spdf-associated problems, the arrangement and behavior of the elements in the periodic table is addressed herein according to the dynamic MCAS electron orbital model.
