Chemistry 370 Weblinks
There are numerous excellent web resources on all of these topics. This is not a comprehensive list; you can do a Google search if you wish to find more. If you find particularly helpful sites, please let me know.
Check this one out for a course designed for 14-17 year olds: SUPER QUİNTET CHEMISTRY I
Atomic Structure and Periodicity
John Dalton, the man and his legacy: the bicentenary of his Atomic Theory. Dalton Trans., 2003, 3811-3820.
Some Periodic Charts:
One of the best, if not the best, periodic chart on the Web, is WebElements. Click on an element and get lots of information.
However, there are some others that are useful and/or amusing.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology is the source of definitive physical data. The following two links will take you to Chemistry and Physics Databases.
Another place to get info is the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics.
The Washington State University Inorganic Chemistry Resources site has resources including a periodic chart that shows atomic, ionic, and van der Waals sizes and a collection of inorganic structures. You must obtain Chime for your browser. I find that some of the WSU CHIME pages cannot be viewed with Internet Explorer, so use Netscape.
Two sites that provide interactive graphical representations of atomic and some molecular orbitals.
There are a number of tutorial sites for VSEPR. Here are three:
The Virtual Chemistry site at Oxford has several resources. The VSEPR one may be helpful during your review.
Some very neat applets that demonstrate various physics and chemistry concepts. See particularly the ones on hydrogenic atomic orbitals and molecular orbitals. Internet Explorer 6 is recommended.
Prof. James Tyrrell at Southern Illinois University has prepared a nice description of symmetry operations and point group assignment.
