About the Site

For those that aren't aware, this site was produced for a second year undergraduate degree project - the aim being to present a vaguely chemistry-related mini-project in web form, suitable for sixth form/first year undergraduate consumption (which I hope it is) - in under two weeks I should also add.

If you have any problems/comments/queries about the site, I'd greatly appreciate them - you can e-mail me at

Superconductor Resources on the Web

There are many academic resources on the Internet (nearly every university has a research department), but aside from links referred to elsewhere in the site, the following two general sites are particularly useful:

These two sites have links to many research departments and other sites more useful to the general public, which should keep you going if you want to know more.
