http://www.uni-regensburg.de/Fakultaeten/nat_Fak_IV/Organische_Chemie/Didaktik/Keusch/D-Video-d.htm 

now better than ever!

 Main site with links to tons of demos from all over the world:

http://www.uni-regensburg.de/Fakultaeten/nat_Fak_IV/Organische_Chemie/Didaktik/Keusch/index.html 

Gott im Himmel !!! Solch ein ausgezeichneter Platz für die Chemie auf Englisch oder Deutsch zu lernen. I notice that the language of my own ancestors, famous for creating tremendously long new words by stringing old ones together, also seems to favor some long URL's too!  But there's a wealth of information on organic experiments and lecture demos here, done up with admirable Teutonic thoroughness and attention to detail. And thanks to Peter for helping me correct the faulty [due to my own traitorous lack of attention to detail] links I had up here previously.

you can also get there by going to   http://www-oc.chemie.uni-regensburg.de/  >> Akad. Dir. P. Keusch, Fachdidaktik Chemie [which takes you to the German version] >> English version >> Links

High School Organic Chemistry "Linear Text" by Charles A. Kingsbury at University of Nebraska -- Lincoln

http://www.chem.unl.edu/cak/tabcon.htm

under development as you read this! To quote from a letter Charles sent to CHEMED-L: 

This is supposed to be a "linear" text, which texts have dropped off the face of the earth in recent years -- minimum distraction from the theme. No pictures, sidebars, "color", or unnecessary add-ons to fragment the student's attention pattern. ... a main problem is: "Do you write for "correctness" or do you write for "understandability." I tried for the latter.

and succeeded!  and despite its lack of "color," it's very colorful indeed!
