The original web site developed by me to help interest and inform the general public on matters of science, and to help aid my students in their studies, has been overtaken by Go.com and turned into a commercial site for them. They stole this site from YOU; I urge anybody reading this message to boycott Go.com, avoid visiting their site, and to refuse to do any business whatsoever with them.
American Chemical Society
American Association for the Advancement of Science
A great resource for teachers; the National Science Teacher's Association
The South Dakota Science Discipline Council web site (of which I am a member and the current webmaster)
A very nice site for searching for information on various chemicals (kind of your own handbook of chemistry on-line)
An excellent source for locating MSDS's (material safety data sheets) on-line for free
Try this source for legal information on chemical safety
A great site for those interested in specific binding properties of proteins (this looks at individual binding properties/structures)
A chemistry web community with search engines, on-line journals, job information, and the like. Registration is free.
A chemistry search engine that has been designed with chemists in mind.
Ever wonder exactly what time IS it?
A resource page for Native Americans (index of indigenous knowledge)
Nature magazine online
An index of crystal lattice structures
RASMOL on-line, a site with a great FREE molecular structure viewing program
A protein data bank with the structures of all kinds of proteins and other organic (biochemically significant) molecules
A "virtual chemistry" web site (beautifully done)
Purported to be the "Homepage for Chemists" (it does have some pretty cool stuff!)
A great site with a pretty cool program to discover just how user-friendly YOUR site is to the visually impaired
FREE STUFF! Check this out LOTS of cool stuff!
