Web education today is becoming increasingly popular. More and more students use the Web for searching information about substances and chemical reactions, but only little part of websites users is able to achieve success in learning chemistry. Free web education has both advantages and disadvantages. Students can study at their own pace and at a convenient time, but they need ability to do exercises without teachers' support. Our research let us understand what a web teacher can do for students' success in learning chemistry. It is hard to study chemistry for many students, because chemistry is a special part of human knowledge. For success in learning chemistry students must have amount of chemical knowledge. Students should understand chemical phenomenon, chemical formulas, and structures of substances. They should have ability to solve chemical problems. We studied educational materials on the most popular Russian-language chemical education websites. Results and discussion are presented in this paper. It has shown what educational websites should publish useful chemical information for students. They should have opportunity to answer any chemical questions and discuss chemical problems with other users. A Web teacher must put information on a website which can improve students' interest in chemistry. Chemical information should relate life situations, a history of chemistry, mass-media and other sides of human life. Web teacher should put multimedia chemical information, not only formulas, equation, but pictures, audio and video on a website. This information is very interested for students and prepares their chemical knowledge and their success. As a result of useful and interested information they should want to visit a website again.
