What were the limitations of dobereiner's classification?

Some of the limitations of Dobereiner’s classification were, Dobereiner could find only three triads; .i.e total of 9 elements only. The law was not holding good for elements having very high mass or very low mass. Not all groups obeyed the Law of Triads. Dobereiner’s triads and Newland’s law of octaves were early attempts at classifying elements into groups based on their properties.
