Statistics for Analytical Chemistry
This page is an introduction to statistical tools used for analytical chemistry. It was developed to help students apply statistical tests and tools to data sets typically encountered in analytical chemistry.

Survival Guide to Analytical Chemistry @ CSU Fresno US
A tutorial guide to problem solving in analytical chemistry.


Aqueous Solutions @ IUPAC
A package of programs for the quantitative treatment of activity coefficients and a wide range of equilibria in solutions of varying backgrounds, ionic strengths and temperatures. Includes software for speciation calculations and titration simulations.

CRC Handbook of Chemistry & Physics Online
The content of the 92nd Edition, 2011-2012, of the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics is available online here.

CS Chemfinder @ Cambridge Software
Chemfinder is the most comprehensive resource for chemical compound data on the Web at this time. Enter the formula, name, molecular weight, or even a drawn structure fragment of a compound and this database fills in the blanks and returns structural formulas and a few other properties, along with compound-specific MSDS links. The database presently contains over 75000 compounds, although detailed data is available only for a few thousand of the most common compounds.

Solubility Database @ IUPAC
The database covers solubilities originally published in the IUPAC-NIST Solubility Data Series. Mutual solubilities and liquid-liquid equilibria of binary, ternary and quaternary systems are presented. Typical solvents and solutes include water, sea water, heavy water, inorganic compounds, and a variety of organic compounds such as hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbons, alcohols, acids, esters and nitrogen compounds.

Stability Constants Database @ IUPAC
This database gives very fast access to all significant published metal-ligand stability constants with over 22000 literature references and with interactive applications to display speciation curves, to correct for temperature or ionic strength changes etc.

NIST Chemistry WebBook
The NIST Chemistry WebBook provides access to data compiled and distributed by NIST under the Standard Reference Data Program.

Thermodynamic Data and Property Calculation Sites on the Web
A link list managed by the Thermodynamics Research Laboratory, UIC.

Wolfram|Alpha introduces a fundamentally new way to get knowledge and answers—
not by searching the web, but by doing dynamic computations based on a vast collection of built-in data, algorithms, and methods.

Standard Methods

GESTIS-Analytical methods for chemical substances
This database contains validated lists of methods from various EU member states described as suitable for the analysis of chemical agents at workplaces. The priority of substances covered here was defined in line with their relevance to workplace health.

National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) Manual of Analytical Methods (NMAM)
A collection of methods for sampling and analysis of contaminants in workplace air, and in the blood and urine of workers who are occupationally exposed. These methods have been developed or adapted by NIOSH or its partners and have been evaluated according to established experimental protocols and performance criteria. NMAM also includes chapters on quality assurance, sampling, portable instrumentation.

NEMI - National Environmental Methods Index
A searchable database of environmental analytical methods 

OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals
Internationally agreed test methods to determine the safety of chemicals and chemical preparations, including pesticides and industrial chemicals
