Organic Chemistry Pages

The Ultimate O-Chem Links Page
This web site, created by Prof. N.J. Turro at Columbia University, contains links to learning resources for organic chemistry students. The links are conveniently arranged by topic. This page is highly recommended for O-Chem students taking a first semester organic chemistry course.

Chemist's Art Gallery
This site contains many links to other sites that have chem. demos, modules, and presentations.

Amino Acids
A very fast web page containing a listing of amino acids, their structures, formulas, and abbreviations. Also, users have the option of downloading the AAs in ".mol" format.

Global Instructional Chemistry
A site with 35 links to sites that offer chemistry instruction on the web!!!

MathMol Home Page
Some structures and movies on molecular modeling.

Chemistry Visualized
Kent Wilson's Group at UCSD has set up an incredible web page tutorial for both general Chemistry and Physical Chemistry. Both static images and movies are used.

Molecule Archives in PDB Format
Many organic and biochemistry related compounds can be downloaded from this site and viewed using freeware programs such as RasMac. Just type in the name or partial name of the molecule of interest to initiate the search.

Molecular Models in PDB Format
Another database of compounds viewable with RasMac from the Department of Chemistry at Okanagan University College.

Organic Compounds Database
A searchable database of over 2000 organic compounds including numerous physical property data as well as spectroscopic data. The world wide web component of this database was created by Professor Tom Shattuck of Colby College.

Periodic Table of the Elements
An easy to use periodic table with fundamental property information for each element.

Fundamental Physical Constants
This document gives the values of the basic constants and conversion factors of physics and chemistry.

Abbreviations of Chemical Compounds
Type in the abbreviation of a chemical compound (for example: THF ) and let this web page find its full name for you.

Acronyms Database
Type in any acronym, especially chemistry related ones (for example: DEPT ) and let this web page find its full name for you.

Biotechnology Dictionary
A nice dictionary of chemistry terms. Though mostly biochemistry oriented, a very well done web page.

Biochemical Compounds Declarative Database
439 unique compounds that can be viewed online in a variety of formats. Searchable by name or as an alphabetical list.
