SOFTWARE AND DATABASE SITES:
USEFUL LINKS (more will follow):
WebElements contains information about the elements in the periodic table and links that may help you in your study of Chemistry.
The Periodic Table of Videos, as the name suggests, has videos and information about the elements in the periodic table.
Symmetry and Group Theory Sites (for those of you who forgot about point groups - if you need to, you can look at the class notes from my 59-250 course):
Point Group Practice Page (if you want some models to practice figuring out point groups, come see me).
A website containing images of point groups and other information regarding point group theory.
Another website containing images of point groups and other information regarding point group theory.
A web site that lets you practice using character tables (it will calculate the irreducible representation for the reducible representations that you have determined and it usually works):
A web site with many examples using group theory and another tool for determining reducible representations:
One of many different sites from which you can learn/teach yourself about applications of group theory to chemical problems:
A series of seven YouTube videos that introduce you to symmetry and group theory:
