Miscellaneous information - gallery of compounds

Many compounds in chemistry are known quite well and detailed descriptions are given about these compounds. With this page, I want to add an extra dimension to that information, by simply providing pictures of many common and some less common compounds.

Especially the transition metals form many beautifully colored compounds. Many of these compounds are shown here. Many other compounds, which are white powders or white crystalline solids are not shown here. A few examples of such compounds are shown and with the pictures in mind from this site, one can perfectly imagine how many other compounds will look like.

All compounds are put in a small glass vial, with a diameter of almost 25 mm and a height from bottom to top of cap equal to 48 mm. Here, you can see an overview of many of the compounds. For detailed pictures of each individual compound, go to the list, further below.



Below follows a list of compounds with hyperlinks to pictures. This list does not contain elements, it only contains compounds, consisting of at least two elements. Click here for pictures of the elements.
