Since IUPAC was established, an enormous body of documents related to chemistry has been produced and become an important part of the foundation on which the practice of and education in chemistry are based. For someone familiar with the structure of the website, all sorts of scientific publications, technical reports, recommendations, and project reports are fairly easy to find. However, educational material and publications aimed at a non-scientific readership, whether IUPAC generated or compiled from other sources in connection with IUPAC conferences and workshops, are often scattered around and might easily be overlooked. In order to make the site more user-friendly, a new index called RESOURCES, has been compiled, designed to provide easier access to these resources. It includes details/access to:

Materials Chemistry Educational website
