State Dalton’s Postulates? In light of modern knowledge, what are the inaccuracies in Dalton’s Postulates?

I know Dalton's postulates:

-All matter consists of tiny, indivisible particles called atoms that cannot be created or destroyed
-Atoms of one element cannot be converted into atoms of another element
-Atoms of a given element are identical in mass and other properties but are different from atoms of any other element
-Compounds result from the chemical combination of a specific ratio of atoms of different elements

But what are the inaccuracies in Dalton’s Postulates in light of modern knowledge?
