PHSC 300 SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE
ASSIGNMENT 8: CHEMISTRY RESOURCES ON THE INTERNET
There are many chemistry resources available on the internet. Some include electronic publicatons, others
are demos of software, or freeware or shareware. Some of the currently working links are listed below:
An Example of a Publication:
Chemistry Drawing Software
- ACD/Labs: http://www.acdlabs.com, the providers of ChemSketch, a chemical drawing program (the second latest version is made available free to students and educators), and you can obtain 30 day demos of simulation programs such as HNMR, CNMR, Log P, IUPAC Nomenclature,
Boiling Point, etc. Occasionally some of these programs may be run online at the site.
- Cambridge Scientific: This vendor has available a dedicated server called the ChemFinder
Web Server to be used online about specific comounds. The address is http://chemfinder.camsoft.com.
Cambridge Scientific are the makers of the ChemDraw chemical strucutre drawing program.
- BioRad (now marketers of former Softshell products such as ChemWindows and ChemIntosh: http://www.chemwindow.com/ -
Formerly this site had a nice selction of free donwloads, currently there are none. They do have very good drawing software for both chemical structures and chemical and chemical engineering apparati.
- IsisDraw: http://www.mdli.com, a free evaluation copy is available.
- ChemVis: http://www2.chemie.uni-erlangen.de/projects/ChemVis/projects.html, a series of Java based drawing and visualization programs
- Wavefunction, Inc.: http://wavefun.com - Vendor of molecular modeling programs for PC, MAC and
LINUX systems. Occasionally online demos of new products are available.
- ArgusLab: http://www.planaria-software.com, A full featured molecular modeling suite available to educators and students for free.
Periodic Table - This is just one of several periodic table sites available: it may be found at http://pearl1.lanl.gov/periodic.
- Find a free chemical drawing program. Return the address. You may want to download this program to
your own computer.
- What are the atricles are currently at the online site for Nature magazine?
- Find the address for some free useful chemistry clipart. You might want to download these also. (The number of sites varies.)
- Find at least two online graphing pages that will allow you to plot your own data. Provide the URLs to the pages.
- Find at least two free graphing programs which may be downloaded to your own computer, for at least free trials (some are just plain free). Provdie URLs to the pages where these may be downloaded from.
