    The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which primary school students are able to independently learn new chemical concepts by using e-unit “Ester” which is included in the chemistry portal E-chemistry, and how pre-knowledge affects the performance of self-directed learning. In addition we were interested in what kind of experience students have with the portal E- chemistry, how often are they using it, who is encouraging them to use it, what are they the missing when learning with E-chemistry, and which elements of the units they appreciate the most. In the research 92 students from two primary schools took part. For the determination of prior knowledge, a pre-test was used. After the work with the unit, a post-test was conducted, and a questionnaire submitted. Results were analyzed quantitatively and qualitatively. The results showed that students who have the appropriate pre-knowledge, and with responsibility worked with the e-unit, were able to learn independently new concepts without the support of teacher, while those with poor prior knowledge and unserious approach to e-unit, achieved poor results on the post-test. The majority of the students were familiar with the portal E-chemistry, but they are using it rarely for independent learning.
