CV and 1993 still with beardCV and 2006 still click click!!I hope these web pages of 'Doc Brown's Chemistry'  help your studies! and a warm welcome to the HOMEPAGE of doc b's "Chemistry Online" revision website. This was my millennium 'teaching & learning' project and Doc Brown (teacher) has been online since 2000! Its a big SCIENCE WEBSITE to get to know from a retired CHEMISTRY teacher (and some physics and general science for teaching and learning purposes), SO, use the appropriate INDEXES and Google custom 'Doc Brown's Site' SEARCH too! 'Doc Brown's Chemistry' (all material Dr Phil Brown 2000 onwards) has lots of  science revision notes & quizzes, mainly an e-learning website for chemistry, but includes some biology and physics too AND lots of 'unofficial' revision summaries for ALL the current English GCSE Science courses
