Diamond gets its name from the Greek "adamas," the adamant, or unbreakable. A genuine diamond is the hardest of all known natural materials. The only reason diamonds can be cut into such brilliant shapes at all is because of their crystalline structure, which creates...
What earth process creates diamonds
By: Jon Dainty Sr.
Diamonds are one of the hardest materials known to science, making them not only beautiful, but also useful for industrial purposes. They are formed in extreme conditions of heat and pressure from carbon atoms. Coal and diamond creation Some students, it seems, are still taught...

Scientific breakthroughs seem to be coming faster and from younger people. The latest advance to rock the world of science—molecular research to be exact—comes from Clara Lazen a 10-year-old student at the Border Star Montessori School in Kansas City. Lazen, after being shown...
How are chemicals identified?
By: Reynold Conger
Some chemicals have similarities that can group the chemical with similar chemicals, but each chemical has several distinguishing characteristics. By looking at the chemical's characteristics, a chemist can identify the chemical. The process is called qualitative analysis. The oldest form of qualitative analysis is a...

Chlorine is a strong oxidizing agent and is used in many toilet cleaning products. Even though chloride ions are necessary for human beings, elemental chlorine is extremely dangerous. When this toxic yellow-green gas (with concentrations above 30 ppm) is inhaled, it reacts with water and...
A concise explanation of Faraday's laws of electrolysis
By: Michael Prather - 660563
Electrolysis is the process by which electrical energy is freed from a substance to produce a charge that generates a non-spontaneous chemical reaction in another substance. An example of electrolysis is the flashlight battery. A negatively charged terminal is placed inside an ionic solution to...

The development of the periodic table is a project that will truly never end. The venture began with a household name of the scientific world, Dmitry Mendeleev. Mendeleev published the first actual periodic table in 1869; he pulled information and built upon earlier scientists’ work...
The formation and expansion of the periodic table
By: Nick Somoski
Chemistry students and scientists alike use the periodic table of elements as a source for answers and new discoveries. It serves as much more than an educational cheat sheet; it's composed of numerous bits and pieces of information about each chemical element and its properties...
The formation and expansion of the periodic table
By: Cicely Richard
The periodic table is an organized table displaying chemical elements by their increasing atomic number. The table subdivides elements by their unique properties. The modern periodic table has expanded from the time the table’s creator Dmitri Mendeleev developed it to include the first known...
