Chemistry is typically defined as the science that studies the composition, structure, and transformation of matter. It has been called "the central science" because of the way it is related with all the other sciences. Chemistry bridges the gap between physics and biology; it is a "helper science" in almost many technical disciplines.
Chemistry & Structures & 3D Molecules

Reactive Reports Chemistry WebMagazine
Reactive Reports is an informative web-based chemistry magazine hosted by Advanced Chemistry Development. It provides the chemistry community with cutting edge reports of exciting developments in the world of the chemical sciences and related fields.
Royal Society of Chemistry
The RSC is the largest organization in Europe for advancing the chemical sciences. Supported by a worldwide network of members and an international publishing business, our activities span education, conferences, science policy and the promotion of chemistry to the public.
The nonprofit National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) offers an online solvent database called SOLV-DB. Users can choose to browse by eight categories: solvent name, chemical abstracts, sax number, chemical number, chemical formula, property category, matching range, and solvent synonym. Once presented, queries provide a list of physical properties such as specific gravity and boiling point, as well as links to regulatory data, environmental fate data, and health and safety data. The main page contains a how-to link that gives additional user information for this already well - designed and user-friendly resource.
A gallery of orbitals on the WWW, including ray-traced images representing orbitals, and animations of wave functions and electron density plots.
TORVS - Chemical Internet Services
This set of databases, created by the Computer Chemistry Center at the University of Erlangen, includes the WWW Chemical Structure Database, containing more than 2250 automatically collected chemical structures from the Internet, complete with information about the referring HTML pages. It is searchable by name, CAS Registry Number, molecular formula and other data, as well as by structure (uploaded in SMILES string format). Also available are collections of 3D structure coordinates, GIF and VRML renditions of molecules and more.
The Wired Chemist is an online collection of scientific resources, including databases, tutorials and animations.
