Easy, but I had a really good time solving it. Gave me a chance to review my table!

I got it without a Periodic Table--and no hint. Yess! After the first two, I figured the words were related, and guessed at the symbols I didn't know. But--who the heck thought up 'W' for Tungsten?? Great fun.

Tungsten used to be Wolfram so the W was for Wolfram (wolframium)

Fun, but I don't do too well with these because I don't know most of the periodic chart.
Thanks for a great teaser!

It was'nt that hard after I figured out what to do. At first I was clueless. Great teaser!!

I tried to figure it out and new it had to do with chemicals, but it's been 30 years since I've been in school and the mind starts to wonder. LOL Thanks for the teaser. I enjoyed trying.

I thought it was VERY easy. I got them all without a hint. Maybe this would have been more fun if more elements were used -- not just common ones like Nitrogen and Oxygen, but more rarely heard of ones like Palladium and Americium; this was quite repetitive to me.
But, this WAS different from all the other teasers I've seen at Braingle so far. Good job!

Great teaser! Ingenious and fun!
How about some more like that?

I knew exactly how to do it but was too lazy to look up ones I didn't know so went directly to answer! Shame on me!!!

As this was something I never learned it was difficult for me, but you made it a very good teaser.

Got it without the hint! Fun!!

I knew that all I needed was the periodic table, having learned about that this morning, but I was to lazy to work all out...

Elementary, my dear Watson!

Good puzzle - thanks

Got a few of them...it's been a long time since I had chemistry! Well done!

Checked the Periodic Table and got them right away. Very clever teaser.

Pretty easy if you are familiar with the Periodic Table. As it has been 20+ years since I have studied chemistry and it is not anything I need to use in my daily life, I didn't remember all the symbols. It was easy to work around that by knowing the rest.
An fun and different word game.

I'm commenting on my OWN comment back in 2010. That doesn't sound like me at all. Today I didn't get it, and I never say things like "elementary, my dear Watson" WOW strange things going on here. But life goes on and I will, too!
