Topic menu

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

  • links to video clips and animations

  • links to various other useful sites

There is a mass of such material on YouTube, but a lot of it contains inaccurate chemistry. Unless I have commented on a specific problem, you can take it that everything I am pointing you to is reliable.

I have tried to avoid animations using Flash, but sometimes I haven't been able to find anything as good. 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.

The order of the topics below is based on the order that I personally would teach them in, and reflects the order I used in the original book published in 2009. The 2017 book, of course, is written in syllabus order.

Kinetic theory and diffusion, solubility, elements, compounds and mixtures
Atomic structure
Bonding and structure
Formulae and equations
Rates of reaction
Oxygen and the air
Reactivity Series
Acids, bases and salts
Testing for things
Periodic Table
Energy changes in reactions
Reversible reactions
Simple organic compounds
Crude oil
