Thermochromism: Mercury(II) Iodide  
When red-orange Mercury(II) Iodide (HgI2) is heated, it undergoes a phase transition at 126oC to a pale yellow form. As the heated sample cools, it gradually returns to the original red-orange color.

Memory Metal  
When a piece of metal wire spelling the letters ICE is pulled apart, it deforms. When the wire is placed in hot water, it "remembers" its original shape, once again forming the letters ICE. (The memory metal used in this demonstration was provided by the Institute for Chemical Eduction.) A simulation of the processes at the atomic level is shown.

Exploring Solid-State Structure and Physical Properties: A Molecular and Crystal Model Exercise  Thomas H. Bindel
This laboratory allows students to examine relationships among the microscopicmacroscopicsymbolic levels using crystalline mineral samples and corresponding crystal models. The exercise also reinforces Lewis dot structures, VSEPR theory, and the identification of molecular and coordination geometries.

Stuffed Derivatives of Close-Packed Structures  Bodie E. Douglas
Examines a variety of stuffed silica crystal structures in terms of the close-packing of one set of atoms or ions (P sites) with other atoms or ions in tetrahedral (T) or octahedral (O) sites and filled or partially filled layers in the regular pattern, PTOT.

A Window on the Solid State  William R. Robinson, Laura Yindra, J. David Wright, Kevin J. Carlisle, Scott Luchau, Steve Koralesky, Erik Yusko, David Pieper
A Window on the Solid State helps students understand and instructors present the structural features of solids. Parts I and II were published previously by JCE Software (1) and Macintosh versions of Parts I and II are also available (2). Parts I and II have been updated to include improvements in art and minor changes in logic. Parts III and IV expand the collection to include the structures of simple ionic solids using the visual effects available in an interactive computer medium. The package provides a tour of the structures commonly used to introduce features of the solid state.

Flying Over Atoms  John R. Markham
Flying Over Atoms provides tools for teaching about atoms and solid surfaces in an introductory chemistry course. Flying Over Atoms introduces and stimulates interest in atomic surfaces and current methods for imaging at the atomic scale. Flying over Atoms uses Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) data and the software program Vistapro, published by Rom Tech, Inc. (not provided) to allow students to create QuickTime movies of atomic landscapes.
