The Royal Society of Chemistry has developed an on-line resource for chemistry education called Learn Chemistry. The site contains material for both teachers and students, and has content appropriate for primary, secondary, under-graduate and post-graduate students. There are many different types of resource, including presentations, videos, worksheets, quizes, experiments, games and podcasts, as well as links to other web sites.
The periodic table is particularly impressive; click on an element to see associated information including physico-chemical data, uses, interesting facts, videos and history. There are also some pretty gruesome accounts of the effect of chemicals on the human body. For example, click on ‘Fluorine’ and look at the podcast describing the fate of an unfortunate lab technician who was exposed to hydrofluoric acid. For analytical chemists, there are plenty of materials on instrumental analysis and other laboratory techniques.
Chromatographers may have to search carefully, though; a resource called ‘Spectroscopy videos’ contains films on GC and HPLC, as well as the expected topics of IR, MS, UV and NMR.
