WELCOME TO SCI-SPOT.COM'S CHEMISTRY SECTION.  HERE YOU WILL FIND METHODS AND PROCEDURES FOR SYNTHESIZING A VARIETY OF INTERESTING COMPOUNDS.  WHENEVER POSSIBLE, STORE-BOUGHT REAGENTS ARE USED, HOWEVER ANY EXOTIC MATERIALS NEEDED ARE AVAILABLE IN THE STORE!

 

 
WARNING:  THE PROCEDURES PRESENTED HERE ARE DESIGNED FOR A WIDE RANGE OF SKILL LEVELS.  DO NOT ATTEMPT REACTIONS THAT YOU DO NOT FULLY UNDERSTAND.  ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES, LONG SLEEVES, AND CLOSE-TOED SHOES WHEN ATTEMPTING ANY SYNTHESIS.  SOME COMPOUNDS USED OR PRODUCED OR TOXIC, FLAMMABLE, OR LETHAL.  SCI-SPOT.COM TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR FAILURE TO OBSERVE PROPER SAFETY PRACTICES.  THESE PROCEDURES ARE FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.

GROW THE ANGULAR, COLORFUL BISMUTH CRYSTALS YOU SEE IN MINERAL SHOPS USING BISMUTH OBTAINED FROM COMMON COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS AND A LITTLE HEAT!
DIFFICULTY:
 

THIS SIMPLE PROCEDURE WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO EXTRACT IODINE CRYSTALS FROM IODINE TINCTURE.
DIFFICULTY:
   

EXPLORE THIS EXCITING NEW FIELD!  MAGNETIC LIQUIDS ARE STABLE DISPERSIONS OF NANOMETER SIZE PARTICLES IN A CARRIER FLUID.  ALSO CALLED FERROFLUID, MAGNETIC LIQUIDS FORM CRAZY SPIKES IN THE PRESENCE OF A MAGNET, AND CAN DEFY GRAVITY!
DIFFICULTY:
   

THIS SYNTHESIS HAS BEEN REMOVED.  I HADN'T ANTICIPATED THE GENERALLY POOR QUALITY OF EMAILS AND ATTENTION IT GENERATED.  I APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
