Hal’s Picks of the Month is a column that Hal Harris writes on Journal of Chemical Education. In this column, Hal recommends books of interest to teachers of Science, especially Chemistry. To our convenience, an index to Hal’s Picks is available on the site (the column started in 1995, there are many books to see). Another interesting site from the same author: Chemical Education Resource Shelf.
Polymers & Liquid Crystals is a pilot program, still in development, produced by a cooperative effort between the Department of Physics and the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve University in conjunction with the Center for Advanced Liquid Crystalline Optical Materials (ALCOM) at Kent State University. The site has a very simple layout with links pointing to other sections of the site. The two most interesting of these sections are a Virtual Textbook and a Virtual Laboratory with several experiments descriptions.
