In the "ConTeXt an excursion"(page 92)(mp-cb-en.pdf), it says,

".... At this moment you can load the following modules:
chemic
units
pictex
"
I noted that the version of "ConTeXt an excursion" is "May 27, 1999", so I think it's also a little out-of-date.

Now my question is, what modules can I use in ConTeXt ? And where can I find detailed descriptions of these modules ?
