Chemistry on the Internet:
The best of the Web 1995

Best of the Chemical Web

Steven Bachrach, Thomas Pierce and Henry Rzepa

Abstract No. 38.
Presented at the COMP Division of the 210th ACS Meeting in Chicago on 21 August, 1995

A selection of high quality chemical information on the Internet, presented as a poster at the ACS Symposium in Chicago on August 21, 1995 as part of the "Chemistry on the Infobahn" session. In compiling this selection, we have focused on the work of key individuals who we believe have shown a vision of the future in creating innovative and original chemistry Internet resources for us all. This selection reflects the personal opinions of the three authors only, and does not represent any form of official endorsement by anyone else or any organization.
