Elements, equations, reactions, solvents,
compoundsall of these concepts are of a
"chemical" nature. The science of chemistry can
be fascinating, but without a knowledge of the
basics, you may have difficulty understanding
more complex experiments or theories. Our
"Chemistry Collection" can be used as a
resource for chemistry students, a springboard
for introducing certain topics in class, or
simply as a complement to learning some
important ideas of the discipline.
The following list of websites contains
information on a variety of chemistry topics,
both elementary and advanced. If you are
looking for resources to help you better
understand certain principles, need information
on a particular chemical element or reaction,
or are directing students to find any kind of
chemistry-related data, experiment, or term,
this Collection is the place to find it.
This site is especially for high school
teachers who are looking for information and
materials that are useful in teaching
A virtual chemistry textbook.
Discovery Of Radioactivity: The
Dawn of the Nuclear Age
This site looks at the discoveries some early
scientists made and how their findings have
helped shape what we know. Their findings
continue to give us new chemistry knowledge
Atomic Structure Timeline
A timeline of the atomic structure, complete
with early theories of the structure of matter.
Includes an introduction to chemistry,
equations, reactions, the periodic table,
information on lab safety, and links to other
The research and findings of many scientists,
on such topics as atoms and molecules, acids
and bases, and elements and compounds.
Web Elements: The Periodic Table
The periodic table and information on all the
elements and their properties.
An interactive periodic table of the elements.
Believe it or not, this site makes chemistry
simple for kids! It includes discussions of
atoms, elements, math, and matter in easy to
of the Electron
This is an online exhibit that tells the story
of J.J. Thomson and his groundbreaking
experiments in discovering the electron.
Fahrenheit and Celsius
Compare and contrast the Fahrenheit and Celsius
temperature scales. Learn how to convert from
one scale to the other.
A resource of chemistry facts and information
compiled by Eric W. Weisstein. He enjoys
"picking up odd bits of information (at least
if they're related to math or science), but can
never remember them unless (he) writes them
down, hence the Treasure Troves."
Teachers' and Students' Information from the American Chemical Society
The American Chemical Society created this section of their website for educators and students to learn more about the field, featuring event annoucements, articles, and links.
Science is Fun in the Lab of Shakhashiri
Professor Shakhashiri from the University of Wisconsin created this fun chemistry site with resources for all.
The pH Factor
This visual site is designed to help young learners explore the concept of pH though clickable activities that use everyday items to promote understanding.
This is a massive collection of chemistry links.
