Strong Points: Good coverge of topic
Weak Points: Could have broader scope, better figures
Here’s a site I covered back in the early days of this column, and like many of us with our physicians, it is long overdue for a checkup. Having grown considerably in the past few years, The Organometallic HyperTextBook Index retains its basic philosophy of a descriptive name and a focus on organometallic chemistry while expanding its coverage of this important topic. With over 50 topic areas, some of which were frustratingly unlinked, the site takes no prisoners in its efforts. Individual topic descriptions contain figures, even though they may be a bit primitive, and hyperlinks to other articles. I’d like to see at least a few things at the site aimed at nonresearchers to help increase knowledge of the topic. Otherwise, a very useful site for practitioners.
