Chemistry Experiments



Even if you're just boiling some water, someone out there is going to bump the container, pour the boiling hot water all over themselves, and get third degree burns. They'll then blame it on the person who told them how to boil the water or the person who sold them the container. In reality, YOU are the ONLY one responsible for your own actions and the results of those actions.
Any chemistry experiment, no matter how simple it may seem, has the potential of being dangerous - even if you follow directions exactly as stated. Keep this in mind when conducing chemistry experiments.
Pyrotechnic (firework or rocket fuel) formulas always require special attention. Many burn so fast that if ignited unexpectedly, they generally can't be extinguished fast enough. Some very high energy formulations such as Flash Powder, burn virtually instantaneously. Pyrotechnic compositions have their own built-in oxygen supply, so they are difficult to extinguish once ignited.
Other experiments may call for Acids or strong Bases like Sodium Hydroxide (Lye) or similar corrosive materials. There are no second chances when dealing with potentially dangerous materials.
Always wear appropriate safety equipment, follow proper laboratory procedures, and most of all, pay attention to what you are doing.

Conduct the experiments found on our website entirely at your own risk.
We assume absolutely no responsibility whatsoever for your actions,
or the consequences of your actions. Although we have reviewed the chemistry experiments & their associated procedures, the vast majority have been reprinted from classic texts. There is always a possibility of an error in the procedure itself or in the materials used which could produce unwanted and unexpected results.

The information and products available on this web site are not intended for Children. Some of the products offered can be very dangerous in the hands of the inexperienced. If you intend on conducting chemistry experiments, make sure you have a basic understanding of standard laboratory and safety procedures.
If you are young or inexperienced, always work under the supervision of an adult who is knowledgeable.
