Chemistry Web Resources
Welcome to the City College Chemistry Web Resources Page
The websites here are useful for chemistry students and chemists at all stages of their career, from undergraduate chemistry majors to postdocs and chemistry faculty.
I have been collecting these selected websites since the early days of the world wide web and I continuously update and revise this resources page.
Please note that some of these tabs cannot fully describe their contents. For example, the Physical tab has links to many websites that have physical property data and spectra for thousands of compounds. The Math tab has websites for conversions of physical units. So click on these tabs to see the websites that may be helpful for you.
Nearly all of these websites are free. The few that are only for City College students, faculty and staff are noted.
The first 26 tabs are guides to the various types of information sources in chemistry. Included here is a page on scientific writing, and even a page on chemistry humor. Then you will see the subdisciplines of chemistry listed alphabetically.
Do you want to learn how to use the chemistry databases and learn the chemistry literature?
Every spring semester the Chemistry Department offers the course: Chemical Information Sources. This one credit course meets once a week.
If you an undergraduate chemistry major who has taken organic chemistry, you can enroll in Chem 40300.
If you are a graduate chemistry student you can enroll in Chem A1400.
The instructor for this course is Dr. Philip Barnett, one of the librarians in the Science/Engineering Library. Please see him if you have any questions.
