ActiveScience - interactive periodic table. Periodic Table: virtual reactions. Crash Course Chemistry. The Elements Revealed: An Interactive Periodic Table. In the October 2011 issue of Scientific American, we celebrate the International Year of Chemistry. Learn more about its impact on our daily lives in our Special Report. UPDATED: 06/18/2013 In honor of the 2013 Lindau meeting, which focuses on chemistry, we have updated our interactive periodic table with links to Nature Chemistry's In Your Element essay series.

Each essay tells the story of a particular element, often describing its discovery, history and eventual uses.

Liquid Crystals. Lists of Nobel Prizes and Laureates Liquid Crystals Play the Crystallite Game Play the Mainstream Game About the game A liquid crystal is a substance that flows like a liquid but maintains some of the ordered structure characteristic of crystals.

Liquid Crystals

Under certain circumstances, phases, liquid crystals have a liquid-like behaviour and during others they have the opposite behaviour. The Nobel Prize The 1991 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for showing how simple analogies can be used to understand more complex systems such as liquid crystals and polymers (plastics), which behave like solids and liquids at the same time.

Invar® & Steel Alloys. Lists of Nobel Prizes and Laureates Invar® & Steel Alloys Play the Invar & Steel Alloys Game About the game The steel alloy invar is a material that hardly expands due to temperature changes.

Invar® & Steel Alloys

Today it is used in toasters, irons, gas stoves, and CRT computer monitors. The Nobel Prize The 1920 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for the discovery of invar, a steel alloy that hardly expands at all and thus is important in scientific instruments.

Chirality - Chemistry 2001

A chiral molecule is non-superimposable on its mirror image. The Nobel Prize The 2001 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded for work with chiral molecules. Molecular Workbench - Database. Molecular Workbench offers interactive, visual simulations and activities that have been widely used in science teaching for students of all ages. Our database is designed to provide teachers and students with easy access to our model-based activities. The activities are derived largely, but not entirely, from projects of the Concord Consortium sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The models are primarily of interactions of atoms and molecules, or rule-based genetics.

All activities are accompanied by: colored icons to indicate degree of support technological requirements links to concepts and disciplines links to standards links to some textbooks Activities can be accessed by typing an activity number in the field Jump to Activity at top right.
