THIS WEBSITE HAS MOVED TO "www.theamateurchemist.com". Please feel free to visit... :)
My goal is to provide fun experiments that the amateur chemist can do. I will provide as many experiments as I can, plus many other laboratory techniques, cool websites, etc. I mainly focus on chemistry, but I do a little physics now and again. My experiments will sometimes be dangerous, and will have to be done in a fume hood or outside, but most of the time it will be able to be done by just about anyone. I will plan on uploading a new experiment with pictures every week or so, depending on how busy I am. Thanks everyone.
Time line of Website
July 20, 2012 - First started the website. Chose name and theme of website. Added pictures and basic page setup. Wrote out the disclaimer section.
July 21, 2012 - Added some buttons for the chemistry section. Worked on the writing of the home page and chemistry page a bit. Added first experiment of making strontium nitrate. Lastly, added the google +1 button.
July 22, 2012 - Added comments section, search page buttons, this time line, and some other basic HTML coding. Also, added a links page with some links to other awesome chemistry websites and youtube channels.
July 23, 2012 - I worked on the 'links' page a lot, adding everything I could think of. I added the 'My Lab' and the 'General Lab Equipment' section and add beakers, Erlenmeyer flasks, round bottom boiling flasks, condensers, and separatory funnels to it. I also added some info to the donations page of the website.
July 24, 2012 - Added the Synthesis of Copper II Chloride to the experiments page. Added a entry script for AdF.ly on the chemistry section. I also added some more empty buttons to the chemistry website.
July 25, 2012 - Worked more on the website. I added a forum to the website to replace the comments section of the website. Updated my forum profile, and put in 2 new topics into the forum.
August 4, 2012 - Added several new experiments, including the synthesis of copper and lead acetate, and how to make a lab power supply from a Xbox 360 power supply.
August 5, 2012 - Added some pictures to the experiments section. Changed the my goals section a bit as well.
October 18, 2012 - Sorry for the big delay. I have been really busy with school and work. I added some new experiments today, and will try harder to add some more soon.
January 6, 2013 - Over the past couple of months I have been adding some experiments here and there, and updating the site periodically. I am going to try to work on more consistently adding experiments every week.
Forum - please go to the forum section of this website. You can add a topic to comment on anything you want, ask for advice, or tell me something. I like the forum much better than the comments section. It is much more organized and just looks plain better. Thanks.
