A website created by Laurie Starkey from Cal Poly Pomona providing videos and simulations of organic lab techniques: TLC, extraction,recrystallization, m.p., and distillation.
Have good students had their laboratory course disrupted by military service, pregnancy, and other life events that prevented them from coming to lab? Maria Gallardo-Williams and the DELTA team at North Carolina State University may have the answer with their virtual organic chemistry lab experiences. Students may eventually be able to complete some lab experiments at remote locations without direct contact with compounds, equipment, and instrumentation.
This site is designed to help organic chemistry students by providing common study resources on topics such as sprectroscopy, stereochemistry, mechanisms, and functional group transformations.
This is an iPad app (only for iPad, I'm afraid!) sponsored by the Chemical Heritage Foundation.
What it does is to simulate an old-time chemistry set, with all the dangerous chemicals. You start with alkali metals in water, and work your way up to heating reactive metals in air with a blowtorch, and mixing alkalic metals with halogens. There's a strong emphasis on BOOM.
Unfortunately this is not suitable for classroom use, at least for me, because you can't get random access to particular reactions. But it is a lot of fun to play with, and perfectly suitable (recommended) for children.
