Two members of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Kentucky, Jim Holler and Jack Selegue,
have set forth to make known any and all references to the elements that can be found in comic books.
Simply click on the desired element in the periodic chart and be whisked to another page to view scans
of the actual comic book pages containing the reference. With each element they explain the history, its
physical properties, and key data. This is an interesting resource to introduce chemistry for someone who
loves comic books.

Chemicals in the Environment OPPT Chemical Fact Sheets
A collection of indexed factsheets provided by the OPPT on toxic chemicals. For each chemical listed, there is a document with frequently asked questions about the chemical and a summary document about the chemical, itself. These summaries include specific chemical information such as the CAS registry number, properties (boiling point, melting point, density, etc. and references), common name synonyms, production and manufacturing information, use, trends, environmental fate, health effects, environmental effects, EPA and other group activity in regards to
the particular chemical, and finally fully cited references for preparation of the summaries.


Chemicool Periodic Table
Whether you're preparing mercury fulminate or enriching Pu-239, you'll find the Chemicool Periodic Table
a handier reference than that musty old handbook on the shelf. There's a colorful image map and all the
things you'd expect from such a reference, such as atomic number and weight, density, and transition
states. But, wait. There's more. You also get energy levels, electron configurations, physical properties,
standard reactions, radius, thermal and electrical conductivity, relative abundance, and estimated cost.
Dump your old links; impress your colleagues with Chemicool.
