An Introduction to the Electronic Structure of Atoms and Molecules

Titled, "An Introduction to the Electronic Structure of Atoms and Molecules", this site is an in-depth review of the basics of atomic structures and atomic physics. Topics such as probability amplitudes, the hydrogen atom, atomic orbitals, the electronic basis for the properties of the elements, chemical bonds, ionic and covalent bindings, and molecular orbitals are touched upon with the help of contour maps and colored diagrams. There is no interactive experiments or animations but the clarity and the amount of material covered is very good. The site also has problem sets, which are a good review for quizzes and tests.
