Answer in Brief

What were the limitations of Dobereiner’s classification?

State limitations of Dobereiner's law of triads?

Solution

  • All known elements could not be classified into groups of triads on the basis of their properties.
  • Dobereiner could find only three triads; .i.e total of 9 elements only.
  • However, the total number of elements was more than that of those encompassed in Dobereiner’s Triad.
