Other DECENT Forums?


I've tried several other forums. This is by far the best one but I'm looking for one to go to on slow days. I've tried Synthetikal and Total Synthesis but they both suck ass! Are there any that are even close to being as good as sciencemadness?



"There must be no barriers to freedom of inquiry ... There is no place for dogma in science. The scientist is free, and must be free to ask any question, to doubt any assertion, to seek for any evidence, to correct any errors. ... We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it and that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. And we know that as long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost, and science can never regress." -J.

Versuchschemie.de is very nice if you don't mind the fact that it is in German. ;)

I used to be quite happy with www.chemicalforums.com, but unfortunately that site has become more and more a place for people, who just want to have assistance with their homework or study assignments. Just go there and judge yourself. At least it is a serious forum, with quite a few knowledgeable people.

If you can read/write German, then www.versuchschemie.de will also be one you'll love. It's a real experimenter's site, with lots of experiments, practical discussions and syntheses. Only thing, which is a pity, is that no discussion of pyrotechnics and energetic materials is allowed.

Unfortunately, the type of sites like sciencemadness is rare. In english language, I actually do not know a single forum, which can stand besides sciencemadness, when it comes to home experimenting, practical experience with making reagents, etc.

Sciencemadness.org is the best, and most enduring.

I can also suggest:
http://www.todoquimica.net , primarily for chemical engineers, mostly in Spanish and to some extent Portuguese; has a good number of ebook links, and also chemical engineering program links.
http://www.roguesci.org , mainly concerned with explosives, weapons (chemical, and ordinary ones such as firearms), anti-freedom conspiracies, drugs, police and other official corruption, etc..

There's also scienceforums.net, which has a decent chemistry section as well as stuff on a lot of other sciences.

If anyone is Vietnamese they can tell you the caliber of this forum

All I can tell is that it is a chemistry forum of some sort.

Yeah, I think SFN will eventually knock down a lot of sites. jdurg jumped to SFN and was immediately given a title.

Oh... duh... I must've been high on my meth that night. Just kidding.
