April 20th marks the passing of the man who first brought table sugar to the masses. Before Franz Achard came up with his refinement process, sugar was a luxury item available only to the wealthy. His process removed sucrose from common beets. This provided usable table sugar at such a low price where anyone could afford to keep sugar in their house.

The Elements Revealed: An Interactive Periodic Table In the October 2011 issue of Scientific American, we celebrate the International Year of Chemistry. Learn more about its impact on our daily lives in our Special Report. UPDATED: 06/18/2013 In honor of the 2013 Lindau meeting, which focuses on chemistry, we have updated our interactive periodic table with links to Nature Chemistry's In Your Element essay series.

Clear Ice Cubes Cloudy Center Dissolved Minerals Icicles Science Experiment of the Week 313 These experiments are from Robert Krampf - The Happy Scientist This week's experiment is the result of my forgetfulness. I took a tray of ice cubes out of the freezer, used half the cubes and then forgot to put the tray back in the freezer. When I remembered, the cubes were half melted. Only the centers of the cubes were left.

Chemistry Freeware On this page I post reviews and links to freeware chemistry programs available for download at other sites around the internet. All of the programs are ones that I have used, or currently use. None-the-less, I take no responsiblity for any problems you might experience as a result of installing any of these applications. Unless otherwise noted, the programs are for Windows systems. ACD/ChemSketch 12 Freeware. ACD continues to release updates to the outstanding Chemsketch freeware. How to Get Clear Ice (with video) Edit Article The Boiled Water MethodThe Top-Down Freezing MethodThe High-Temperature Freezing Method Edited by Lucky7, Jack Herrick, Maluniu, ClaytonB and 8 others What chemical elements would look like if they were people We at Bright Side are certain that any subject, no matter how complicated, can be made interesting for children provided it’s explained in an accessible way. Take chemistry for example, which is often considered one of the toughest subjects for a child to learn at school. We suggest beginning with the most famous chemical elements and their characteristics.

AP Chemistry Review Activities AP Chemistry Interactive Review Activities In keeping with the new framework for AP Chemistry beginning in 2013 - 2014, I am indicating here if the topic to which a review activity relates has been dropped from the curriculum. It will be identified as excluded (Excluded) to indicate that the College Board has specifically excluded it. I will leave the reviews here, however, in case some of you find them useful. These are not graded assignments. They are intended only as practice of concepts and vocabulary that are essential to your success in this course.

A Homemade Giant, Crystal Clear Ice Cube Tray As you're probably aware, I've been dabbling in experiments making clear ice at home. The way I've found that works best is to freeze ice in an Igloo cooler with the top off. (Please read the post before you tell me to boil the water in the comments- it doesn't work.)
