The Sheffield Chemdex has been online since 1993, and remains a handy resource for those persons with an interest in chemistry. The site is maintained by Mark Winter of the chemistry department at the University of Sheffield and it contains several thousand annotated links that cover everything from inorganic chemistry to chemistry puzzles and quizzes. First-time visitors will note that the homepage features a rotating selection of relevant websites culled from this archive. Visitors can also use the Guided Search area to look through several dozen topical headings, including Physical Chemistry Departments and Elements & Compounds. Additionally, the site contains links to other chemistry sites in a range of languages. Visitors with a particular topic in mind can use the keyword search to look for specific resources. The site also allows users to sign up for their RSS feed and submit questions and sites for possible inclusion.
