Sharing Chemical Engineer's Challenging, Exciting, Interesting and Stimulating Life...

General Chemistry Online

I stumbled upon an interesting chemistry site which is useful for chemical engineering students and practicing chemical engineers. General Chemistry Online is put together by Fred Senese at Frostburg State University. The site excels in several areas.

The first is a Common Compound Library. In it, users enter the name of compound and a search engine retrieves data about the molecule, which includes links to PubChem, Webbook and MSDS info. Chime structures and spectra are included where relevant. Second is a section entitled Exam Survival Guide. It provides practice exams and "ten ways to pass your next exam" that will be popular with students (sometimes chemical engineering students have some problem understanding chemistry!).

A glossary covers many of the terms and can be sorted by topic. Last, a set of Construction Kits help students to "build" chemical equations, convert units, and construct ionic compounds. Clearly a labour of love, General Chemistry Online has been around long enough to be called a classic of web education. I highly recommend this informative and resourceful website. Check it out.
