On occasion if you get a 404 try a right click and a "save link as": that has worked for me once in awhile.

Science for dummies


Do they have a Chemistry for dummies....elementary version?

I'm 42 years old, never took a single Chem class in my life, but I have always found science (especially Chemistry) very fascinating.

I have a 13 year old daughter who is taking Chemistry next year, so I am building her an 8'x8' Chemistry lab and I am going to "try" to learn chemistry as well.

What books would you recommend for a total novice ?

Also, I would like some feed back on my fume hood and diffuser designs.

For #21 (radical reactions), I'd be interested if it contains lots of info on the hydroxyl radical.

But the link doesn't work.
Could you upload a new link?

Obviously you should bear in mind that it's an old book, it does mention asbestos a few times so just use some common sense. And it is quite basic, but on top of a standard education it should still be a nice introduction.

Is there a chance we can get an updated thread with links?

I noticed many of the links listed are either dead or outdated. Obviously there are still some links that can be salvaged.

I just bought an organic chem set with six round bottom flasks, a setup funnel, short and long condenser, and some adapters/vac attachments. I've been looking for info on assembly of lab equipment, what condenser is for what, how many arrangements can I use with this adapter... And so on. I have been researching by looking up lab ware I know but it would be nice if there was a page that had pics of different arrangements and how to best use them all in one place.
I really love the forum-finally a place where people use their heads, maybe there is still hope for mankind:-P

The Organic Chem Lab Survival Manual 2nd edition by James W. Zubrick
http://archive.org/details/TheOrganicChemLabSurvivalManual

Covers recrystallization, standard/vacuum filtration, extraction, washing, solvent selection, tlc/hplc/gc/ms/nmr/ir, how to properly assemble kit, simple/vacuum/fractional/azeotropic distillation and refluxing, flash chromatography and tube chromatography for separating mixtures. It's a quick read.

Grab it while you can, this will probably be DMCA'd. Wiley owns the rights to the current (8th) edition.


Videos: MIT Open Courseware Digital Lab Techniques Manual
http://ocw.mit.edu/resources/res-5-0001-digital-lab-techniqu...
I also have the lab manual for this course, PDF 2.5mb, 105 pages. I'm not certain of the status of the rights on it.

I downloaded Zubrick. It has a lot of useful information in it, especially for someone like me who never took college chem. But I don't like his attitude toward the students---always telling them that they will get a bad grade if they don't do this or that. I prefer motivating students with intellectual curiosity, or pride in a job well done.



Any other SF Bay chemists?

ICASE Guidebook to Constructing Inexpensive Science Teaching Equipment Series


Guidebook to Constructing Inexpensive Science Teaching Equipment, Chemistry
http://archive.org/download/GuidebookToConstructingInexpensi...

This book has a lot of improvised apparatus, useful for that bridge period between "Working in Jars nicked from the kitchen" to purchased apparatus.

Example images:
Untitled.png - 54kB

Also in the series:
Guidebook to Constructing Inexpensive Science Teaching Equipment, Biology
http://archive.org/download/GuidebookToConstructingInexpensi...

Guidebook to Constructing Inexpensive Science Teaching Equipment, Physics
http://archive.org/download/GuidebookToConstructingInexpensi...

All are public domain.

annaandherdad: Regarding Zubrick, I didn't take it that way. I understand that Orgo lab students, especially near the end of the term, adapt a tolkein-gollem-like attitude towards their reaction products. This may include referring to it as "the precious", washing product back out of a melting point tube with a tiny syringe, and using liters of solvent to get every last bit off of decoloring carbon. The author is playing toward that mindset.
