Chemistry Subcategories:


American Chemical Society - Includes information about careers and jobs, Chemical Abstracts, education, chemical headlines and more from the Society.

NIST Chemistry Portal - NIST has long been developing and compiling benchmark data for the properties of important substances, classes of substances and systems. Its data collections, data prediction methods and models meet high priority industrial and national needs. The following list of databases contributes to U.S. industry's productivity and competitiveness and improves public health, safety and environmental quality.

Nobel Prize in Chemistry Winners - From 1901 to current, this site lists the winners and the work for which they received the Nobel. Click on the winner's name to access more information about their work.

Selected Internet Resources for Chemistry (SIRCh)- This site from Indiana University lists chemistry links by topic and is nearly comprehensive in its coverage.

Sheffield ChemDex – The directory of chemistry on the www since 1993.

Virtual Chemistry - Award winning website that allows you to mix chemicals virtually.

Virtual Library WWW Links for Chemists - Lots of links.

WebElements Periodic Table - Aims to be a high quality source of chemistry information on the WWW relating to the periodic table. Coverage is such that professional scientists and students at school interested in chemistry and other sciences will all find something useful.

Where to Find MSDS Data Sheets on the Internet - A Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is designed to provide both workers and emergency personnel with the proper procedures for handling or working with a particular substance. MSDS's include information such as physical data (melting point, boiling point, flash point, etc.), toxicity, health effects, first aid, reactivity, storage, disposal, protective equipment, and spill/leak procedures. These are of particular use if a spill or other accident occurs.
