The base which gets very excited and interested when acid shows up
- base: I find the experience... titrating
Nothing makes you look more suspicious than randomly laughing while doing science, because you know who else randomly laughs while doing science? Supervillians.
So I probably won’t be on here as much for the next month or so, because among other things I am packing to move across the country, trying to finish and submit the paper on my undergrad work for my PI, taking a cross country road trip with my sister to look at colleges for her (whatever possessed me to agree to this so soon before I move across the country I cannot say), and moving across the country. I’ll be posting some at least most days, as running this blog has become one of the ways that I unwind when I’m stressed and I predict that I will complain a fair amount about moving so there’s that, but probably not a ton and not super consistently, particularly when I am driving across the country. So yeah, that’s why I won’t be posting as much, but after the third week of August or so I will probably be back to normal volume and will have new and shiny classes and lab work to complain about.
Q:heat the solution of iron(ii) chloride to get iron(iii , ii) oxide which react on carbon monoxide to form iron at over 1000K / I've never done this in the lab :P
Sokobond, a Chemistry-based Puzzle Game, Coming to Steam
Sokobond, described as “the best chemistry themed 2D indie puzzle game where you’re trying to make molecules (since SpaceChem),” is coming to Steam on July 21st for $10. The objective of the minimalistic game, Sokobond, is for players to link together atoms, provided on a variety of grids, together to form molecules.
Initially, Sokobond will only be available for Windows PC, Mac, and Linux platforms. However, there are plans to eventually have Sokobond available on iOS and Android.
Q:I have a(nother) random chemistry question.... If I had a solution of Iron(ii) Sulphate (or something similiar) what would be the best way to go about getting the iron out it a metallic (and pure) form?
I’m not sure… you would have to reduce the iron to it’s zero valence metallic state, but that’s all I got. Any inorganic chemists out there have an answer?
