Delights of Chemistry - Chemistry demonstrations performed at the University of Leeds in the UK. Movies, video, photos, animations, text.
Entropy Sites: A Guide - Consists primarily of copyrighted articles from the Journal of Chemical Education dealing with a modern view of entropy: the dispersal of energy in a process (as a function of temperature).
Environmental Chemistry - Provides chemistry, environmental and hazardous materials educational resources including a detailed periodic table of elements; articles on chemistry, environmental and hazardous materials issues; a geologic timeline; and more.
Eric Weisstein's World of Chemistry - This resource has been assembled over more than a decade by internet encyclopedist Eric W. Weisstein with assistance from the internet community.
Indiana University Molecular Structure Center (IUMSC) - Access to X-ray crystallography data generated at the IUMSC. Crystallographic studies provide sets of atomic coordinates that locate atoms of a molecule in the "unit cell" of a crystal. This information is used to generate images of the molecule and determine distances and angles in the molecule. Additionally, this data allows one to examine the packing of the molecules in the crystal. Such information can lead to an understanding of the properties of the material.
Information Retrieval in Chemistry - Chemistry and sciences resource compedium by field and by topic; chemistry mailing lists overview; Internet resources by topic; Greek resources.
Leadscope - Develops and markets a chemofinformatics application that provides seamless access to research data. It incorporates chemically-based data mining, visualization and advanced informatics techniques (prediction tools,scaffold generators, etc.). The platform, coupled with its content databases, provides a comprehensive in silico discovery solution
Materials Project - The Materials Project is more than a database of known information. "The tool computes many materials' properties in real time, upon request, using the vast supercomputing capacity of the Lawrence Berkeley Lab. We still don't know most of the properties of most materials,Prof. Gerbrand Ceder says, but he adds "that in many cases these can be derived from known formulas and principles." An ever-growing database of more than 18,000 chemical compounds, the site's tools can quickly predict how two compounds will react with one another, what that composite's molecular structure will be, and how stable it would be at different temperatures and pressures. It used to require months of work - consulting tables of data, performing calculations and carrying out precise lab tests - to create a single phase diagram showing when compounds incorporating several different elements would be solid, liquid or gas. Now, such a diagram can be generated in a matter of minutes.
Microchemical Journal - A peer reviewed journal devoted to all aspects and phases of analytical chemistry and chemical analysis.
Nobel Prize in Chemistry - A review of the Nobel Prize in chemistry in the last one hundred years reveals how the prize awarding institution has interpreted Alfred Nobel's intentions.
Nuclear Chemistry and the Community - Introduction to: the relationship of energy and matter; the origins of nuclear energy; the use of nuclear energy for power and weapons; high energy radiation; how spent nuclear power fuels are potential sources of nuclear weapons; and insight into questions about nuclear issues that are in the news.

The visualizations utilize the Chime web browser plug-in viewer which allows them to be interactively zoomed and rotated so they can be viewed from all angles, much as with a real molecule. They can also be programmed with highlighting features that allow identification of specific atoms, structural sub-components, and mineralogical planes.
Visual Elements Periodic Table - Murray Robertson has produced a striking new representation of the chemical elements drawing on the symbolism that surrounds them from the commonplace, nickel in baked beans, to the mythological, Oppenheimer's invocation of Shiva as the genie behind the destructive power of the element plutonium.
