Chemsoc, the Web network for the United Kingdom's Royal Society of Chemistry, has prepared this site as "a linear based exploration of key events in the history of science with a particular emphasis on chemistry." This visually attractive site is full of important dates and events in chemical science; once the entire timeline has loaded, visitors can see the major advances in an overview format. By clicking on each date/ event, a second window appears with a brief explanation of the importance of the event and links for further information. Anyone with an interest in the history of science or chemistry will appreciate this well done look at the major events, ranging from the Big Bang to the sequencing of the human genome and beyond. A helpful date finder allows users to select a period of history to jump right to major events in chemistry of that time.
