Gifted and Talented Chemistry - Structure and Bonding


Knowledge of structure and bonding can help explain the properties of materials. All the properties of a particular substance depend upon the elements present and how they are bonded to each other.  This programme is designed to develop students understanding of structure and bonding as well as developing thinking and research skills.


A resource designed to challenge students containing a mix of theoretical and practical activities


The RSC would like to thank Tim Jolliff for the use of his materials in these resources. Tim's book 'Chemistry for the Gifted and Talented' is also available on Learn Chemistry.
