Recommended by the National Science Foundation "A collection of more than 250 links aimed primarily at chemists and researchers but also useful to teachers, organized by categories. A great resource for educators because sites have been reviewed for their excellence and this eliminates searching through "junk"."
Recommended by the National Science Foundation, 'Maintained by David Wilner, this website provides basic chemistry help for students in grades 9 through postsecondary. The site is organized by subject matter and is strictly a supplemental tutoring resource."
PubChem provides information on the biological activities of small molecules. PubChem includes substance information, compound structures, and BioActivity data in three primary databases, Pcsubstance, Pccompound, and PCBioAssay, respectively.
