How to get kids interested in chemistry
By: Susan Kristoff
Chemistry happens all around us every day, and can be used to explain many questions about the world that kids ask. Chemistry is a great subject to expose kids to because of the dramatic demonstrations and experiments that can be performed. Many experiments are safe...
Chemistry science fair projects: Carbon sequesteration
By: Susan Kristoff
Carbon sequestration is a hot environmental topic that can be translated into a science fair project topic. Scientists are looking for methods to reduce the effects of carbon dioxide on the environment by the "greenhouse effect" by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the...

In electroplating electrical energy provides electrons to convert metal ions into atoms. A thin metal coating is deposited on a surface to protect it or to make it more beautiful. Electroplating is used to apply a thin layer of gold to a cheap jewelry base...
Green chemistry and the shoe industry
By: Madhusoodanan K.P
Green chemistry consists in integrating chemical processes and naturally available materials, with the object of achieving sustainable development. That means for any product to be used, the manufacturer as well as the consumer/end user should be aware that there is no adverse impact on the...
Beginner's guide to copper electroplating
By: Susan Kristoff
Copper electroplating is the process of adding a thin layer of copper to a metal base part using an electric current. Copper is often plated over other metals to improve electrical conductivity or appearance. Due to the high cost of copper, many parts that were...
Aviation Technology: Understanding jet engine metallurgy
By: Susan Kristoff
A jet engine in an aircraft is subjected to very harsh conditions during operation, including high temperatures, vibrations, and mechanical stresses. In order to withstand these environmental effects, jet engine components have to be manufactured using specific materials and alloys. Each part of the engine...
How to make liquid magnets
By: Brian Dodson
Liquid magnets, also known as ferrofluids, are colloidal suspensions of nanometer-scale magnetic materials in a liquid medium. A typical ferrofluid might comprise about 5% by volume of iron oxide particles roughly 10 nanometers in size, about 85% of a carrier fluid, such as kerosene, and...
Green chemistry: Plastics
By: Glen Brizius
Green Chemistry is making great leaps and bounds in the area of plastics. Plastics are ubiquitous in our everyday life - we can scarcely imagine life without them. However, the preparation and processing of plastics is a nasty, environmentally-messy process that generates vast amounts of...
Could there be life on other planets?
By: Rand E Oertle
Perhaps the most crucial answer to the question of whether there could be life on other planets is: “Can humanity’s comprehension be expansive enough to recognize life forms for which we have no definition?” That will be determined as we discover new...
