Description
Yinon Bentor presents an interactive periodic table of the elements. For each element, Bentor highlights basic facts and notes the atomic structure. Links to related sites are available. This information is suitable for use with all levels of chemistry or science classes.
Books
Description
Reaching beyond the typical high school chemistry textbook, each title in this series offers real-life, concrete examples that illustrate the practical importance of the topic at hand, and includes a full-color periodic table, color photographs, sidebars, and a glossary.
Description
Scerri (Univ. of California, Los Angeles) has written a scholarly, thought-provoking book about the history and impact of the periodic table of the elements. A central premise is that the creation of the periodic table was not strictly a "eureka" moment, but rather the evolution of many thoughts and ideas that continues even today.
Encyclopedias
Description
Hundreds of well-illustrated articles explore the most important fields of science. Based on content from the McGraw-Hill Concise Encyclopedia of Science & Technooogy, Fifth Edition, the most widely used and respected science reference of its kind in print, each of these subject-specific quick-reference guides features: * Detailed, well-illustrated explanations, not just definitions * Hundreds of concise yet authoritative articles in each volume * An easy-to-understand presentation, accessible and interesting to non-specialists * A portable, convenient format * Bibliographies, appendices, and other information supplement the articles.

Founded in 1880 on $10,000 of seed money from the American inventor Thomas Edison, Science has grown to become the world's leading outlet for scientific news, commentary, and cutting-edge research, with the largest paid circulation of any peer-reviewed general-science journal. Through its print and online incarnations, Science reaches an estimated worldwide readership of more than one million. In content, too, the journal is truly international in scope; some 35 to 40 percent of the corresponding authors on its papers are based outside the United States. Its articles consistently rank among world's most cited research.
