Chemistry

Every moment of every day, chemistry plays a part in all we experience. This branch of the Helium network humbly attempts to illuminate the vast array of chemical knowledge, making it accessible to all. Let our site inform, inspire, and awe you with chemical wonders.
Are there more than three Phases of Matter
By: Robert Hoglund
It is commonly taught that there are three basic states of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. Elements and molecules behave differently in these states based on how excited they are. In solids, the molecules vibrate, but are mainly held in the same structure. In liquids...

If water is poured in a pan and put it on a stove over heat, the water will eventually start boiling. The phrase "water is boiling" essentially means that the water is transitioning from a liquid to a gaseous state very rapidly and this brings...

Researchers from the University of Buffalo have now discovered a new technique to staple peptides to preserve their shape better. A peptide is simple a molecule that contains in it more than one amino acid. Peptides are smaller than proteins. If they are small enough...

A majority of grade school students will know that the boiling point of water is deemed to be 212 degrees Fahrenheit, or 100 degrees Celsius/Centigrade. A particularly astute science student may even refer to the boiling point of water as being 273 degrees Kelvin (273...

At atmospheric conditions of standard temperature and pressure, carbon dioxide is a gas. It is a covalently bonded molecule composed of one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms, whose chemical symbol is CO2. It is colorless and odorless, and is a small constituent of air...

Ethyl mercaptan, also known as ethanethiol, is an organic compound (liquid at room temperature) with a strong, unpleasant odor. It is often added to propane, butane, or liquid petroleum gas, which are otherwise odorless, to make it easier to detect gas leaks. It is flammable...

Since its discovery in 1910, propane has become an important source of fuel in the United States. Because it becomes a liquid when pressurized, propane is more portable and easily stored than many other fuels. When released from pressure it becomes a gas that can...
