Periodically, we also work in our sleep! 😉 With this ad Region Eastern Europe celebrates the International Year of the Periodic Table. 150 years ago, Dimitri Mendeleev from Russia created the first periodic table of chemical elements – allegedly while sleeping. For more than 170 years, predecessor companies and today Evonik have been giving products their special properties. For example, we make mattresses more elastic, white bedding brighter, linen antistatic, and towels fluffier. Our passionate experts create innovative solutions anywhere and at any time – sleepless nights or systematic daydreams are part of it. All this to ensure that our customers have a good night's sleep.
