Organic chemistry Nomenclature Loong's nomenclature answers, to be ordered by Blue Book section, one day when I feel up to it... I've done all the oldest answers, up until and including the "smallest sum of locants" question. P-14.3.5 IUPAC nomenclature: "Smallest sum of locants"? and direct applications of this rule: 1, 2 P-29.2 How ...

Inorganic chemistry Nomenclature Why is methane's molecular formula conventionally "CH₄", while water is "H₂O" (among others)? How to name binary (inorganic) compounds given their chemical formula, and vice-versa?

I never said I am against lists, I only said, they tend to create a lot of work. A list of extreme chemicals as a collection type Q&A might be a good way to catalogue them and create a tiny little compendium. You can totally go for it and create it on the main site. When you do, make sure you explain in good detail how this works. Once you complete the ...

I've tried some template with $\mathrm\LaTeX$ array for a list in the question: \begin{array}{lllll} \hline & \text{Type} & \text{Auto Optimization} & \text{Fragments} & \text{Molecule Info} \\ \hline \text{Avogadro} & \text{3D} & \text{yes} & \text{yes} & \text{M.W., IUPAC} \\ \text{BKChem} & \text{2D} & \text{no} &...

As with the other thread we should give it a lot of time to lay out the structure of such a list. Objections are one thing, contributors another. The resources thread took more than a month to create and after we seemed to agree on how to do it and we proceeded to do it, there was a new discussion about how to organise it. The post itself is far from ...

At the time of writing, the question had 17 up-votes, 1 down-vote, no answers. The proposal is accepted. I have further edited and reopened the linked post and additionally placed a bounty on it. I hope this is a further motivation to extend the resources post.

Currently the thread is disorganised, so below are a couple of thoughts on how to improve it: There are two different kinds of grouping here: by the type of a resource (book, video, website, etc.) and by the branch of chemistry the resource is about (general, organic, computational, etc.) So let us decide first on the overall structure of the thread: shall ...

Now that this question was reactivated (thank you winterbash), I guess it is time for an update. I personally think it was quite a good idea to make such a list. It was also referred in the more recent and more successful proposal: Resources for learning Chemistry (on meta). To make this status-completed, you can find it as its own answer in Resources for ...
