Chemistry in General Edit
This is where most forum discussion takes place. Here, topics in inorganic chemistry are discussed.
Organic Chemistry Edit
Any discussions involving organic chemistry, including organic synthesis, take place here.
Reagents and Apparatus Acquisition Edit
This is where finding sources of lab materials is done. Occassionally, trades may take place here, and offers may be promoted.
Absolute beginning chemistry subjects, including help with basic chemistry, are discussed here. Note that you must demonstrate some sort of effort before posting here for help - do not copy and paste textbook questions here.
This section is dedicated to all other forms of mad science discussion, including physics, biology, mathematics, metallurgy, element collecting, radioactive materials, and electronics. There is also a "Pretty Pictures" thread for posting lab photos, and a "Short Questions" thread for asking questions that aren't worthy of starting a whole new thread.
