    Please evaluate my web portal http://www.webqc.org and tell your opinion.
    Thank you in advance!

    I like it, do you think you could use frames for the bottom though? So that when you click on an element, the entire page doesnt have to load again?

    Just a small detail though.

    I like your list of constants.

    Thank you for comments!
    Frames are not good for indexing by search engines :)
    I've just added more data about each element!

    Sigh...sign of my age. When I was in school, only 106 elements were known, and IIRC, elements 105 and 106 were given the generic nomenclature "Unilpentium" and "Unilhexium" respectively.

    Graar! I don't mean to nitpick but Sc,Y,La,Ac,An,Cd,Hg and Uub aren't transition metals iirc.

    Cd, Hg

    Well, I will respectfully disagree with the last statement.
    Here is the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transition_metal
    Or (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadmium)
    Cadmium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Cd and atomic number 48. A relatively rare, soft, bluish-white, toxic transition metal, cadmium occurs with zinc ores and is used largely in batteries.

    iirc the definition of a transition metal element is a d-block element which forms ions with at least one unpaired d-block electron still present. The ones I listed above don't do this (at least, not for stable compounds iirc).

    oh, and on that first like you posted

    transition metals

    OK, I see that people define it differently. :approve:

    ONLINE TOOLS for chemists

    Please check my site again!
    I've added a "ONLINE TOOLS" with
    molar mass calculator and chemical equation balancer!

    I've just added NEWS section there where I present collected news from several sources.
    Do you think it can be useful?
    Thank you!

    It is definitely somewhere I would think of going if I was still in my ap chem class (you're a little late). But I like it, and I'm sure that you will tweak the design as the site progresses.

    ...and please, don't put any frames...its fine the way it is. Actually, although I wouldn't use frames, the way you view the elements now does feel a little awkward.
