Kalzium is an excellent periodic table with many extras (3d visualiation of atoms, numerous graphs, etc) – Cumulus007 Aug 26 '12 at 15:55

Rasmol is available for *nix. It is probably the most popular molecular visualization tool around.

Install via the software center

You could always try browsing the software center. There's a Science and Engineering section and even a Chemistry sub-section.
