Other Resources Relevant to Teaching Chemistry

Below are some sources of information relevant to the teaching of Chemistry that the MERLOT Chemistry Editorial Board thought would be of interest. We will be adding more over time. We will also be developing our alliance with The Journal of Chemical Education and will be jointly posting more of their resources in the future.

Our Partner Organization – ACS Journal of Chemical Education

Last year MERLOT and the Journal of Chemical Education signed an agreement and for the past year have been working together to share capabilities and content.
