There is this playlist on a YouTube channel called Kimberly Stites.

It has some interesting videos for qualitative testing.

If you've got a young/teen aged person interested in chemistry or history of science, this one may be of interest- Whole book used to be free online, I read it a while back.

Rapopart’s Rules for critical commentary:

1. Attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly, vividly and fairly that your target says: “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way.”
2. List any points of agreement (especially if they are not matters of general or widespread agreement).
3. Mention anything you have learned from your target.
4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism.

Anatol Rapoport was a Russian-born American mathematical psychologist (1911-2007).

Shameless plug? ;)

I found your blog on Google the other day. I enjoyed reading through your posts. I meant to come here and actually mention that fact, but was sidetracked.

Personally, I found this one interesting: Sand to Silicon Dioxide (https://hobbychemistry.wordpress.com/2015/04/11/pure-silicon...)

@Loptr,
Thanks for the compliments :D
Consider following it :cool:

EDIT:
Just out of curiosity, were you the one that placed a comment about using a strainer?

Um, which one might you be referring to? All that I have seen are by far inferior to this one.

I'm joking, but I'm referring to chemical forums, http://www.chemicalforums.com/ They have a surprising user-base, but are, of course, inferior :) I'm sure they think the same of us though... :P

Chemical forums.com


Yeah, I've been to "that other forum" a few times. I can't stand the way they tend to slap down, criticize, humiliate or otherwise make some poor guest or newbie feel really unwelcome. I got into a long discussion with a couple of their moderators over there over that subject. Seems they want to defend their behavior. I gave them several good examples of rude behavior by moderators or senior members toward newbies or guests and they just wanted to justify it, even suggesting that I didn't know the rules and asked me to go read them. They just don't want to hear that they don't treat some folks well. I don't think I've ever seen that kind of treatment of anyone on any of the forums I've read through on this site. I get a real feeling that some of their moderators over there have never really had any kind of authority over others in their lives, but now they're moderators of something on the Internet and they sometimes tend to go overboard. A couple of them are really disagreeable characters. I just don't ever go there anymore as I always just end up mad at how they treat people. This site has so much more pleasant folks running things.



...it has often proved true that the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.
