Hello everyone,
been visiting this forum for quite a while now and finally managed to register an account.

I am from Germany and got a passion for chemistry and science in general even though I am not a trained or studied chemist.

I also like DIY-stuff like self made magnetic stirrers, heating mantles, fume hoods and since all chemicals I am using for my experiments are acquired over-the-counter I'm somehow enjoying the fact that I am often very limited in regards to accessible reagents... Or let's say I'm trying to make the best out of it because sometimes I wish for a lab grade supply of everything ;)

I've attached a few pictures showing my little lab and some of the equipment I am using.

Looking forward to participate!

Hello, that's great news. Germany has often produced the best chemists. I look forward to your first post;)!

Always fun to meet another experimenter on our forum, welcome. :cool:

Missed this one.
More a reflection of me having little time for this board atm.

Welcome, HomeChemist. I hope you stick around and do some interesting stuff. A warning however, this board can be addictive.

That’s a nice little setup you got there! I can see most of the essentials; hot plate, distillation apparatus, sep. funnel, addition funnel, et cetera. What is that cylinder in last picture?
