Royal Society of Chemistry 1998 HE Teaching Award
WebElements aims to be a high quality source of
chemistry information on the WWW relating to the periodic table.
Coverage is such that professional scientists and students at school
interested in chemistry and other sciences will all find something
You will find thousands of graphics showing elements
structures and periodic properties here.
Currently, most information is about the elements
themselves but the scope of WebElements will include simple compounds as
well as more chemistry information in the future.
Note that elements 113, 115, and 117 are not known,
but are included in the table to show their expected positions. Elements
114, 116, and 118 have only been reported recently. But .... the
team of Berkeley Lab scientists that announced two years ago (1999) the
observation of what appeared to be Element 118 (heaviest undiscovered
transuranic element at the time) has retracted its original paper after
several confirmation experiments failed to reproduce the
results. This means that the pages for element 118 and parts of
the data for element 116 are wrong. Please see this page for more details.
WebElements is rated as one of the MARS
Best of Free Reference Web Sites of 2001. MARS is the Machine-Assisted
Reference Section of the Reference and User Services Association of the
American Library Association.
WebElements is featured in the Institute for
Scientific Information's (ISI) premium collection of evaluated scholarly
Web sites called Current Web Contents.
