Visual Chemistry

Plutonium.jpgOne section of the Royal Society of Chemistry website is geared toward those in the general public with an interest in chemistry. Their Visual Elements Periodic Table is beautifully organized, with an image accompanying each element, and information about its date of discovery, name origin, and a brief description of its use.

There's also a visual timeline of significant events and advances in chemistry, from the Big Bang all the way to the possibility of thermonuclear fusion by 2050.
