  • Periodic Table of Elements
    Clinking on an element pulls up its Wikipedia page
  • ChemWeb provides easy access to abstracts, papers, journals, books, conferences news, and forums.
  • Chemistry Functions
    A page that will do various calculations related to chemistry. Moles can be converted to particles; pounds to grams; grams to moles; and various others. The reverse is also computed for some conversions. It also provides the mass of the elements on the periodic table and various compounds.
  • Organic Chemistry Resources Worldwide
    This site's mission is to collect and independently annotate all useful organic chemistry sites and to present them in an intuitive way. It's broken down into six parts - literature, the bench, structural analysis, the desk, communication and additional activities.
  • Eric Weissten's World of Chemistry
  • Classic Chemistry
    The heart of this site is Selected Classic Papers from the history of chemistry, which links to dozens of seminal texts in philosophy of chemistry, the physics of chemistry, biochemistry, and other chemistry topics. Texts range from excerpts to complete texts and include scientists such as Lucretius, Aristotle, Dalton, Faraday, Lavoisier, and Bohr. Arranged by subjects and titles. In addition, there is a This Week in the History of Chemistry section;a glossary of archaic chemical terms; and annotated links to other Web sites with related biographical and historical information.
  • Chemistry-Based QuickTime, Shockwave Flash, GIF Animations, and Streaming Audio
    A collection of "animations [that] support the teaching of concepts in chemistry in freshman through graduate level courses." Concepts include chemiluminescence, electrophoresis, gas chromatography, spectroscopy, and more. From a professor at Sam Houston State University, Texas.
