My Notes

This LO consists of some web resources for discussing chemophilately, the study of chemistry through postage stamps.

This LO is part of a special VIPEr collection honoring the 2021 ACS National Award recipients in the field of inorganic chemistry. Daniel Rabinovich was the recipient of the ACS Award for Research at an Undergraduate Institution for a career involving outstanding supervision and mentorship of undergraduate chemical professionals in synthetic inorganic chemistry


Learning Goals

Through these web resources, students will be able to:

  • define chemophilately
  • list examples of how stamps have captured and celebrated different aspects of chemistry



Implementation Notes

These web resources may be used during class or assigned for viewing outside of class. A follow-on activity could be ask students to choose a stamp commemorating a particular person, event, or chemical achievement and research the topic more fully.

Time Required
depends on implementation
