We are currently crafting a podcast on the best free resources out there, and we have quite a few already. Anything you want to share with the world?
Remember, it’s gotta be FREE!
If anyone is struggling with their basic chemistry knowledge, I can recommend a YouTube channel which has an excellent series of videos dedicated to common chemistry topics e.g. Acid-Base Reactions, The Ideal Gas Law, The Periodic Table, etc.
Crash Course – Chemistry: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8dPuuaLjXtPHzzYuWy6fYEaX9mQQ8oGr
It won’t remove the need for studying textbooks and other reference materials, but they do a great job of giving you a quick 10 minute overview of numerous topics.
I’d also recommend Periodic Videos: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtESv1e7ntJaLJYKIO1FoYw
Perhaps a little more chemistry-heavy, but it’s a very valuable resource for people who wish to delve deeper into the realm of chemistry – without the whole reading books thing.
A good resource which some of you may find useful is the SDBS Spectral Database for Organic Compounds:
It allows you to obtain quick spectral reference information for chemical identification.
Railroad crossing locator is a good app to identify the owner of the crossing and provide contact information for them. Very handy!
Another decent app is Hazmat Evac. It is useful for determining placement of road blocks. Not perfect but useful.
There’s a new website called ‘Toxic Docs’, where once confidential corporate documents related to toxic substances have now been published. It is a project based at Columbia University and the City of New York University.
Toxic Docs: http://www.toxicdocs.org
I’m not sure whether you’ll find this useful, but I hope you find it interesting all the same!
