|Chem Edu Int|
online newsletter of the Committee on Chemistry Education presents
reports, facts and figures, as well as opinions and essays.
|Chemical Safety - Essential Toxicology|
collection of presentations provides educators with materials
for teaching and learning the fundamentals of toxicology. Educators
should select those materials appropriate for their own local
requirements and supplement them with examples relevant to their
extensive series of educational illustrations gives science and
chemistry teachers a practical working tool to present diagrams
and situations which are complicated to draw. Other more entertaining
drawings can also be used to present a particular fact or concept,
in the hope that visual imagery will permit the concepts to be
more easily understood.
work is an integral part of science education. A joint UNESCO/IUPAC
project aims to introduce teachers to the advantage of performing
chemistry experiments on a small scale. Teachers' Guide &
Students Worksheets are made available via the UNESCO Global
|Periodic Table of the Elements|
|Link to the IUPAC table in a printable (letter size) format, and snap-shot of the time of discovery.
This resource website maintained by the IUPAC Polymer Division constitutes an easy starting point for searching educational resources related to polymers. Check the CD and do not miss checking the mini movies and many more.
|Practical Studies for Medicinal Chemistry|
collection of 41 laboratory exercises is representative of the
field of Medicinal Chemistry. The exercises are easy to reproduce
and in many cases interdisciplinary. Some of them consider natural
products as the work material.
|The aim of this site is to ensure the dissemination of accurate information on the chemistry of agrochemicals and the regulations pertaining to their use in one web site and in an easy to use format. The site also gives access to the FOOTPRINT PPDB (Pesticide Properties Database).
package of programs for the quantitative treatment of activity
coefficients and a wide range of equilibria in solutions of varying
backgrounds, ionic strengths and temperatures. Includes software
for speciation calculations and titration simulations.
|C-NPU - Nomenclature, Properties, and Units in Laboratory Medicine|
database contains the current C-NPU coded properties; it is searchable
by C-NPU code (e.g. NPU01234) or by the elements of which the
properties consist (e.g. blood).
|Gas Kinetic Database|
website provides kinetic and photochemical evaluated data in the
form of summary tables of kinetic data and individual sheets of
reaction data, e.g. for some heterogeneous reactions, a number
of halogen, Ox, HOx, NOx and SOx photolysis reactions, and a number
of gas-phase Ox, HOx, NOx, SOx and organic reactions.
database contains data essential for calculation of analytical
results from neutron-activation analysis (NAA). The method used
is a comparator method called the k0 method.
The database includes recommended values for k0
and other relevant nuclear data.
database covers solubilities originally published in the IUPAC-NIST
Solubility Data Series. Mutual solubilities and liquid-liquid
equilibria of binary, ternary and quaternary systems are presented.
Typical solvents and solutes include water, sea water, heavy water,
inorganic compounds, and a variety of organic compounds such as
hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbons, alcohols, acids, esters
and nitrogen compounds.
|Stability Constants Database|
database gives very fast access to all significant published metal-ligand
stability constants with over 22000 literature references and
with interactive applications to display speciation curves, to
correct for temperature or ionic strength changes etc.

|Chemical Terminology (Gold book)|
> Advanced XML version <http://goldbook.iupac.org>
The IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology is the definitive guide to chemical terminology; it now contains more than 7000 entries, is easy to browse, search, and navigate.
|Quantities, Units and Symbols in Physical Chemistry (Green book)|
book provides a readable compilation of widely used terms and
symbols from many sources together with brief understandable definitions.
Full text pdf with with bookmark by chapters and sections is available.
|Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry (Blue book)|
reproduction of the IUPAC Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry has
been prepared by Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc and is searchable
on the ACD website.
|Macromolecular Nomenclature (Purple book)|
second edition of the IUPAC Compendium of Macromolecular Nomenclature
is currently in preparation; see draft content at www.iupac.org/projects/2002/2002-048-1-400.html
The existing Compendium (1991) consists of an introduction to macromolecular nomenclature and nine chapters corresponding to the then valid IUPAC recommendations.
|Analytical Terminology (Orange book)|
Web edition of the IUPAC Compendium on Analytical Terminology
provides ease of access to the extensive information contained
in its recommendations.
Biochemical Nomenclature and Related Documents (1992) presents
IUPAC-IUBMB (International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular
Biology) Joint Commissions' recommendations; it includes sections
on amino acids, peptides and proteins, enzymes, nucleotides, nucleic
acids and protein synthesis, carbohydrates, lipids, etc.
IUPAC International Chemical Identifier (InChI) is a non-proprietary
identifier for chemical substances that can be used in printed
and electronic data sources thus enabling easier linking of diverse
data compilations. The source code and associated software and
documentation are available on this web site.
is the reserved namespace for the XML-based IUPAC standard for
experimental and critically-evaluated thermodynamic property data
storage. It covers essentially all experimentally determined thermodynamic
and transport property data (more than 120 properties) for pure
compounds, multicomponent mixtures, and chemical reactions (including
change-of-state and equilibrium).
