  • Online Middle School Chemistry Resource

    Updated: 2013-01-11 18:13:42
    The ACS Education Division has developed a new middle school chemistry resource, "Middle School Chemistry: Big Ideas about the Very Small." This free, six-chapter resource can serve as either a stand-alone chemistry unit or as a supplement to any middle school science curriculum. "Middle School Chemistry" uses a hands-on inquiry approach along with specially designed molecular model animations, to take students from concrete experiences to an understanding of the world of atoms and molecules. Share this free resource with middle school teachers you know.

    Hi, I have a question about substitution reactions. I have a secondary alcohol in HBr acid. Does the alcohol condensate and form ether or does it lose OH and join Br? More accurately, does Sn1 or Sn2 mechanism dominate?
