## Links to Chemistry Resources (under construction)

 IBM STM Atomic Level Images Images of groups of atoms obtained by scanning tunneling microscopy maintained by IBM. Nanotechnology A short discussion of nanotechnology and lots of links. NMR Spectroscopy Lots of links to NMR related sites. University of Nebraska University of Nebraska chemistry links. Intute The Intute service is created by a network of UK universities and partners. Subject specialists select and evaluate the educational and research websites in their database and write high quality descriptions of the resources. Computational Chemistry and Organic Synthesis This combo no longer sounds like oil and water. May be worth a look. Aldrich Chemical Catalog The Aldrich catalog does provide prices for the chemicals Aldrich sells, but it does much more; it is, in fact, a handbook of organic chemicals, providing information on properties, safe methods of disposal, etc. Science Magazine --- on-line Science is a premier general interest science journal. The on-line version includes some of the material in the printed version. Nature Magazine --- on-line Nature is a premier general interest science journa l. The on-line version inclues some of the material in the printed version. www.chemdex.org Lots of links from the University of Sheffield. WWW Chemistry Resources A rich collection of chemistry related links, worldwide. Acid/Base(including pH) Tutorial Acid/base (pH) tutorial from University of British Columbia. Be aware that this tutorial treats H+ as if free protons existed in solution; they do not. In water, H+ is really $H$3O+. American Chemical Society The American Chemical Society homepage.
The background image is a view of the C60 "buckyball". This allotropic form of carbon was discovered in the early 1980's. Additional carbon-cage structures have been discovered since then. Collectively, these structu res are called fullerenes. The other two allotropic forms of carbon, diamond and graphite, have been known much longer. A number fullerene related structures can be viewed here .
