Chemistry - Useful websites
A range of high-quality resources for Chemistry are available on the web. Start exploring them here:
General journal directories
- Journals TOC: Service which provides access to table of contents of many journals.
- TechExpo DIRECTORY OF ENGINEERING AND SCIENTIFIC TRADE TECHNICAL MAGAZINES: A (if some what dated) listing of a range of trade publications, many of them freely available online.
- Allery Chemistry - YouTube channel: Revision videos created for various secondary school Chemistry exams. Useful for revising previously acquired knowledge.
- Journal of Visualised Experiments (JoVE): for help with laboratory techniques, a collection of videos demonstrating key experimental methods.
- Learn Chemistry: A free resource for Chemistry teachers and students of all levels, including higher education, hosted by Royal Society of Chemistry.
- Wolftam Chemistry Glossary: Glossary of Chemistry terms.
- IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology: The online version of the "Gold Book" which collects together terminology definitions from IUPAC recommendations published in the journal Pure and Applied Chemistry and in the other Colour Books.
- IUPAC Nomenclature: Provides information on IUPAC recommendations, hosted by Queen Mary. Many full-text versions of recommendations are also made available.
- Interactive Periodic table: “The Royal Society of Chemistry's interactive periodic table features history, alchemy, podcasts, videos, and data trends across the periodic table.”
- WebElements: The periodic table of the chemical elements on the web.
Organic chemistry/Inorganic chemistry
- Macrogalleria: Provides a wealth of information around polymers, created by the University of Southern Mississippi.
- Molecule of the Month: As the name suggests, every month a link to information about a new molecule is added to this site. An alternative collection is available at com.
- Organic Chemistry Portal: Offers an overview of recent topics, interesting reactions, and information on important chemicals for organic chemists.
- Organic Synthesis:Provides detailed, reliable, and carefully checked procedures for the synthesis of organic compounds.
- Organometallic HyperTextBook: This site, created by Rob Toreki, is designed as a reference tool for students that are starting out in the area of organometallic chemistry. It includes information on a wide range of topics as well as links to other useful Internet resources.
- NIST Chemistry WebBook: Provides the most comprehensive spectral data collections on the web.
