One For Your Science Staff: Periodic Table Explorer
This does more than some other packages I have seen. The download is offered as Zip, Standalone and Executable only. I found that the Zip and Executable only were corrupt after download.
The Standalone is presented as an installer, but once installed seems to be quite portable [I have tested some of the features of the program running from a central location and it all seems to work OK]
Best of all it is freeware. Also the latest release was only a few days ago.

Just downloaded and had a quick play and I'd have to disagree with that. Granted the somewhat colourful periodic table display might not be to everyone's taste but the colours are there for a reason, and frankly I've seen commercial apps look much worse than this. Other parts of the application may be more to your taste - see my screenshot attached (and yes, I blatantly cheated at making it look nicer by running it on Vista instead of XP with the Fisher Price theme!)

I have to agree. There's simply no excuse for those ugly BeOS icons in the toolbar.
