Electroplating sounds complicated and a bit dangerous. If you don’t believe me, just have a look at most books on the subject. The good thing is, it doesn’t have to be either expensive or difficult for the beginner to get into basic electroplating...
Chemistry science fair projects: Making colored soap bubbles
By: Madhusoodanan K.P
It is a universal past time for children all over the world (and sometimes even adults; especially those associated with kids) to make soap bubbles and play to their heart's content. Colored bubbles would naturally be an added attraction for them. Normally it is not...
What are aerogels and how are they used?
By: Madhusoodanan K.P
Aerogel has been reported as nanotechnology's wonder material of the modern times. Its several uses and multifold applications in a number of fields are already taking the scientific world by surprise and delight. Aerogel is considered as a solid material. However most of this material...
Examples of physical changes
By: Mishra Planeswalker
A physical change is a modification that is induced in a substance which does not change the substance’s chemical makeup. Thus, the term physical change is in direct contrast with the term chemical change. We see the effects of physical changes every day, whether...

The most significant symbols used in the Laboratory are warning labels. Storage closets and chemical containers display the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) fire diamond. The four quadrants of the fire diamond are color coded. Red in the top quadrant denotes the fire hazard, blue...
Why carbon is the basis for so many compounds
By: Megan Furner
Carbon: many people know what it is, but only a few know what it does. Organic chemists are most familiar with the element and the magnitude of its usefulness. However, one does not have to have a Ph.D in Organic Chemistry to gain a...
Miniature chemistry: Lab on a chip
By: Madhusoodanan K.P
The advent of nanotechnology has opened up the lab-on- a-chip technology in many fields such as chemistry, physics, electronics, biomedical engineering, electronics, biology, chemical engineering and so on. Having utility and practical application in a wide range of areas varying from space exploration to pathology...

There are two common misconceptions that many children, and some parents, have about science. First, they think it's boring, and second, they think it's just for nerds or "brainy kids". In fact, all children are curious about their world, and there are many terrific children's...
Are there more than three States of Matter
By: Charles Ray
Traditionally, we’re taught that there are only three states, or phases of matter; solid, liquid and gas. The form that matter takes is a function in differences in the motions and forces and molecules that go into its makeup. In solids, the molecules are...
