The Catalyst: Chemistry Resources
for the Secondary Education Teacher on the WWW
This site contains resources for both chemistry
teachers and students. Links are divided into topical categories
such as general, experiments, history, periodic tables, and software.
It is also available in Spanish.
This is a site where one can search for basic physical data
and suppliers of chemicals by registry number, molecular formula, chemical name
or synonyms in different languages.
This site is links to other sites about chemistry. The links
are arranged by categories so that the content of the linked pages is readily
This site allows searching by chemical name, CAS number, molecular
number or molecular weight. Basic physical information is returned as well as
synonyms, DOT Number, EPA Code, and links to additional information.
Chemical Achievers: The Human Face of the Chemical Sciences. From the Chemical Heritage Foundation.
Chemical Elements.com is an interactive periodic table of the elements.
Entries include Basic Information, Atomic Structure, Isotopes, Facts, and Related
Users can visit the Virtual Gallery and do experiments online. "Eight
Global Messages of Chemistry" are available for viewing as QuickTime movies.
Marsden's Chemistry Resources for Students and Teachers
Steve Marsden's site is a collection of internet resources
grouped under headings such as WWW Links, Elements, Lectures, Demos, and Labs.
The Virtual Textbook
This site is a virtual textbook, which gives basic descriptions
of chemical terms that are useful to introductory chemistry students.
This is an Environmental Protection Agency site promoting green, or sustainable chemistry. It is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances. Green chemistry applies across the life cycle of a chemical product, including its design, manufacture, and use.
(Mathematics and Molecules)
This website gives an introduction to molecular modeling and
offers examples of products available for educational purposes.
NIST Reference on Constants, Units, and Uncertainty
This site provides a searchable database of values of constants
and a searchable bibliography.
This site provides searchable access to the data compiled and
distributed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology such as thermochemical
and thermophysical data, IR spectra, and mass spectra.
Organic Chemistry Web Site Links
This site gives links to many other sites that are useful for general as well
as organic chemists. Links include chemistry portals, databases, nomenclature,
and named reaction sites.
This is a free search service, which provides access to over
6,000 spectra. The database can be searched using compound name, CAS number,
molecular formula, molecular weight or through spectrum matching. Spectra are
FT-IR, UV-Vis, Raman, NIR, and MS.
An Index of Selected Thermodynamic Data Handbooks
This is a searchable index of printed handbooks and compilations
of thermodynamic and thermophysical data. It is useful for finding which handbook
might contain the data needed. The cataloging system used is that of the Library
University of Georgia
Environmental Safety Services Right To Know Program
This site provides links to Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
and other sources of information for pharmaceuticals and pesticides.
This site gives element information including names in four
languages, historical information, uses and physical, electronic, and nuclear
Links for Chemists
This is a site of links for chemists divided up into categories
and sub-categories. Contains useful reference information for colleges and universities
looking for funding and publications.
to Find Material Safety Data Sheets on the Internet
Indexes include general sites, government agencies, chemical
manufacturers, and links to pesticide information.
