Study Aids

  • Chemistry Educational Digital Library (ChemEd DL)  
    Sections "Observe!", "Explore!", and "Explain!" each contain helpful images and videos. See the "Collections" area for data-driven exercises, digital demonstrations, and "living textbooks".
    Topics include reactions, atomic structure, elements, and solutions. Content includes sample problems, diagrams, and so on.
  • Organic Chemistry Animations ChemTube3D
    Created by Nick Greeves and Alex Lawrenson of the University of Liverpool, these animations cover cycloadditions, conjugate addition, and twelve other areas of organic chemistry. Visitors can scroll through the list of animations on the left-hand side of the homepage, or they can use the embedded search engine. A set of controls allows users the ability to manipulate the animations for a better view and they can also remove and show various hydrogen atoms.
