Internet Resources Related to this course:
- Searching for something on the web? The Lycos Homepage is the place to go. Enter keywords and away you go! Give it a whirl! 01-10-95.
- A color periodic table with the elements and masses filled in is available at Oklahoma State 01-10-95.
- Web Elements is an amazing interactive periodic table database. You can get atomic radii, electrochemical reduction potentials, chemical properties and much much more just by clicking on an element. Trends are displayed graphically (Sheffield site only) -- a VERY powerful tool. Several mirror sites are available. You can try any of these below, but start with the ones that are closest for fastest service. The one at Sheffield is very recent and mega-cool, but links to the UK will tend to be slow during the day (but try it if you get a chance) 01-10-95:
- Visit the Nobel Foundation and learn about the people, history and chemistry behind the prizes (also notice that Economics is NOT a true Nobel prize).
- Visit Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. and find out interesting info about some chemicals and processes that are made using organometallic catalysts.
- The Indiana Molecular Structure Center has all sorts of cool molecules structures and some really nice crystallography and educational materials. If you go to the "IUMSC Data Libraries" from the home page and use the search,you will find quite a few organometallic structures. For example, type "W2" in the field that says "Enter The string you wish to search for below:" and then click the "submit" button, you should find 15 ditungsten compounds. The IUMSC number is highlighted with the formula given. By clicking on the IUMSC number, you will be taken to the proper file. At this point you can look at the various files ("Report and data files for nnnnn"--kind of boring) or you can use the "Prototype Molecule view of nnnnn" The later works only with Java-enabled viewers (such as Netscape 2.0 beta), but allows you to actually see and rotate in real time the molecule in question.
- The Schrock Group Home Page at MIT details the current research interests of his group and has very nice graphics/drawings. Richard R. Schrock is a world-reknowned organometallic chemist who pioneered the field of alkylidene chemistry and developed the first well-defined olefin metathesis catalysts.
- Michael Heinekey's Page at the University of Washington has a simple synopsis of his interests in hydride and dihydrogen chemistry as well as some selected publications.
- The University of Waterloo Library (Canada) has a nice page detailing where to find Inorganic and Organometallic information in the library. Standard references for background info, numeric data, synthetic data, review articles and journals are given along with a short description of each.
