Welcome to the Chemistry group! If you are a student or practicing engineer or scientist who wants to learn more about chemistry or an instructor looking for materials to use in a course, you can find material here that includes complete courses and seminars on specialized topics.

Much of the material is freely accessible by any visitor, but by joining this group, you can participate in discussions on topics of interest to you, post items to the group wiki or even work on a project with other group members. Additionally, as a group member you may receive notifications about new materials and events of interest to the Chemistry group members. Adding events to the group calendar is as easy as clicking on “add event”.

You can also contribute more substantial resources to nanoHUB through the resource contribution process, and then send a message to the group manager so that links to those resources can be added to this group.

This group contains the following:

Introductory Material

How Chemistry Records the History of People and Products

Purdue University (2010)
Taught by Gabriel Bowen
I know what you did last summer… and where you were and what you ate and what you drank. When it comes to the chemistry of your body, you really are what you eat (and breathe and drink), isotope ratio ecology and hydrology, IsoMAP, modeling

Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion simulator

By Baudilio Tejerina, Northwestern University

This tool calculates the optimal distribution of particles subject to a Coulombic potential on the surface of a sphere.

Molecular Workbench – An Interface to the Molecular World

Taught by Charles Xie
The Molecular Workbench software is a free, open-source modeling and authoring program specifically designed for use in science education. Powered by a set of real-time molecular simulation engines that compute and visualize the motion of particles interacting through force fields, in both 2D and 3D, it provides a simulation platform for teaching and learning science through atomic-scale reasoning. Many important concepts in physics, chemistry and biology that are otherwise too abstract to understand can be visualized with dynamical and interactive simulations. You can also find out some existing activities at the MOLO and MOLIT curriculum databases., a resource for nanoscience and nanotechnology, is supported by the National Science Foundation and other funding agencies. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
