View Resource Chemicool Periodic Table

The Chemicool Periodic Table is a simple yet elegant site that allows users to click on their element of choice, or type in its name or symbol. Element names are color coded (solid, liquid, gas, as well as synthetic or naturally occurring) and information is provided in ten categories including general (atomic number and weight), states, energies, appearance, reactions, and abundance, to name a...

View Resource NIST Chemistry WebBook

For information on thermodynamic data for over 5,000 chemical compounds and on ion-energetics data for over 10,000 chemical compounds, NIST's Chemistry WebBook is available for searching. Compounds can be searched by name, chemical formula, or CAS (Chemical Abstracts Service) registry number. Information on enthalpy of formation, heat capacity, entropy, ionization potential, and appearance...

View Resource 109: A Visual Interpretation of the Table of Elements

Provided by chemsoc, the chemistry societies network, this new site offers an attractive and informative visual interpretation of the periodic table. Blending the work of artists and chemists, the site features computer-generated interpretive images, descriptions and histories, and a link to a data sheet in .pdf format, for each of the 109 elements. The site's contributors have also collaborated...

View Resource Molecular Models

Created and maintained by Dr. Dave Woodcock of the Chemistry Department at Okanagan University College in British Columbia, Canada, this site features models of over 1,100 molecules in .pdb, or Chemscape Chime, format (link to free download provided). Users may search the molecular database using an internal search engine or browse by category or alphabetically. Index page entries include the...

View Resource ScienceMaster - Physical Science Homework Helpers

As part of the much larger commercial site ScienceMaster, the Physical Science page Homework Helper contains an interactive periodic table, scientific calculator and several glossaries of related terms. The site also provides length, area, mass, and temperature equivalency converters and even a weight calculator to determine how much you would weigh if you were on the moon or one of several...

View Resource The Periodic Table of Comic Books

Maintained by F. James Holler and John P. Selegue of the University of Kentucky's Department of Chemistry, the Periodic Table of Comic Books (yes, comic books) provides a undeniably fun way to learn about the elements. Clicking on periodic table elements brings up a page of comic book issues that involve that particular element. For example, clicking H for hydrogen brings up eight links to comic...

View Resource Livermore Scientists Team With Russia to Discover Elements 113 and 115

This website discusses the discoveries of two super heavy elements -- element 113 and element 115 -- by a group of scientists from the Chemical Biology and Nuclear Science Division at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the Glenn T. Seaborg Institute, and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Russia (JINR). Researchers can learn how, through the fusion reaction of calcium-48...

View Resource Center for Synchrotron Radiation Research and Instrumentation: Periodic Table

This interactive periodic table created by the Center for Synchrotron Radiation Research and Instrumentation provides x-ray properties for the elements. For each element, users can find data on its chemical properties, edge energies, edge jumps, and fluorescence yield. By adding an energy value, users can receive x-ray cross-sections at that energy, which includes photoelectric, coherent, and...

View Resource Elements and Atoms: Case Studies in the Development of Chemistry

Carmen Giunta at Le Moyne College created this website to offer a series of articles by the pioneers in the science of atoms and elements. The author provides background and commentary on the work in order to educate users about how scientists work. The website is divided into four parts: elements, atoms, classification of atoms, and back to atoms. Students can find links for definitions of...
