RSC - Advancing the Chemical Sciences



Chemistry Topics

(adapted from "Chemistry Cassettes")

These learning resources are designed for individual, self-paced learning and are appropriate for post-16 students in schools, colleges and universities

They were originally created as cassettes and booklets by the Educational Techniques Group of the RSC - hence the original name "Chemistry Cassettes". They are now available for personal private study in MP3 and PDF format.

How to use the workbooks and audio

Instructions and suggestions

Software Requirements

MP3 files can played on many different types of software.
