The page for each chapter has a variety of useful material, including:

  • links to video clips and animations

  • links to high quality practical material including instructions for students and lab techicians, and risk assessments

  • links to various other useful sites

My great thanks to my ex-colleague, Mike Thompson, who is making available short, good quality, videos on YouTube of the basic practical chemistry at GCSE.

Warning! Many of the links are to short bits of video from YouTube, and are likely to be very large files. Accessing these without a reasonably fast broadband connection is unlikely to work in any sensible time-span. To be usable, they probably need a connection speed reliably in excess of 1 Mb per second.

Quite a few links use Flash animations. If the animation doesn't work, it may be that you don't have a sufficiently up-to-date Flash Player. If you have problems, go to Adobe Flash Player downloads to find the most recent version which will work on your system. This is free.

Some mobile devices such as Apple's iPad or iPhone don't support Flash. As far as I know, there is nothing you can do about that.

If you come across other websites (especially if they contain good video or animations) that you think might be useful could you let me know via the address on the about this site page of Chemguide. Could you also let me know if any of the links stop working.
