Open source chemistry: The Synaptic Leap

Provides a network of online research communities that connect and enable open source biomedical research. The Synaptic Leap is all about enabling new collaborative pathways for biomedical researchers. The research talents brought to bear on medical issues should no longer be constrained by geographical boundaries. The sum of the connected whole will be much greater than the sum of the disconnected parts. It is our duty to mankind to provide the collaborative infrastructure that connects scientists willing to make the leap to accelerate the research process.

Chemistry Teaching Resources
       Created by Knut Irgum - Maintained by Svante Åberg. This is an attempt to present a comprehensive list of chemistry teaching resources on the Internet.

Earth Portal

The Earth Portal is a comprehensive resource for timely, objective, science-based information about the environment. It is a means for the global scientific community to come together to produce the first free, expert-driven, massively scaleable information resource on the environment, and to engage civil society in a public dialogue on the role of environmental issues in human affairs. It contains no commercial advertising and reaches a large global audience

The Earth Portal has three components:

  1. The Encyclopedia of Earth, with over 2,000 articles, is produced and reviewed by 700 scholars from 46 countries.
  2. The EarthForum provides commentary from scholars and discussions with the general public.
  3. The EarthNews offers news stories on environmental issues drawn from many sources.

Educational Sites in Surface Science
        Maintained by me. It contains a range of links to sites concerned with education in surface science, chemistry and physics.

Electrochemistry Source Portal
       Portal to many thousands of electrochemistry information items - Encyclopedia - Dictionary.

IUPAC Goldbook

Welcome to the interactive version of IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology, informally known as the Gold Book. On these pages you will find a browsable, interactive version of this publication.

       You may start:
