Chem1 Atoms, quanta and the periodic table

The basics of atomic theory, including a conceptual presentation of elementary quantum theory that is far more organized and understandable than we have ever managed to accomplish in the classroom, and which involves a minimum of mathematics. A three-level menu system allows easy navigation through the thirty individually-accessible sections.
