- Chemical Information Sources
Helpful links to resource guides and free databases for chemical information, maintained by Indiana University's Department of Chemistry.
- Chemistry.org: the Website of the American Chemical Society
Although much content is available only to ACS members, open availability of the "molecule of the week," with archives, the animated periodic table, issues of Chemistry Magazine, career resources and the "chemistry headlines" service make this a valuable website.
From the Department of Polymer Science at the University of Southern Mississippi, this site is organized as a five-level "mall," each level providing information on polymers for both general users and undergraduates that builds on information from the previous levels.
- Martindale's The "Virtual" Chemistry Center
Organized by broad topic, a gateway to chemistry sites on the web for everything from journals to periodic tables to tutorials to safety.
- Material Safety Data Sheets and Where to Find Them on the Internet
Provides an up-to-date list of Internet sites from government agencies, chemical manufacturers and suppliers, and many other searchable sites
