Absorb Chemistry

Absorb Chemistry is an interactive course written by Lawrie Ryan, the best selling author of 'Chemistry for You'. It's ideal for use on a whiteboard in front of a whole class or by students by themselves.

Absorb Chemistry is divided into units, so you can follow the course all the way through, or use the units individually. Each unit provides a compelling narrative supported by interactive animations, our unique simulations, videos of key experiments, and exercises to ensure concepts have been understood.
