Welcome to the Chemistry home page.
These are all housed here. You can find the appropriate area from the menu above. The curriculum areas have now been properly organised with links to over 120 experiments either in a list or placed in the sections of the curriculum where we think they fit. If you think any are in the wrong place – or should be referenced elsewhere as well, please let us know. I have removed the somewhat artificial division into ‘workshops’, ‘demonstrations’ and ‘other experiments’
At the moment, N4, N5, Higher and Advanced Higher are still arranged in ‘Units’. I am aware this has changed but have not yet decided how to change the layout.
All is now housed under the H&S Tab but click to get to the chemistry H&S page.
The Hazardous Chemical’s Database has information on a large range of chemicals that are commonly encountered in school. It contains data on the hazards associated with each chemical, information on how to handle, store and dispose of it, and what to do if you spill it or have an accident. You will also find information on a range of experimental procedures involving each chemical. There is now an index to enable you to search for a chemical under a variety of names.
There is also a large amount of background H&S information about handling chemicals, legislation, PPE etc. -The Uses tab houses the embedded chemistry calculation spreadsheets. If you want them offline, you can download the whole spreadsheet here (Concentration calculators overall).
Here you will find information on any chemistry-related CLPL courses on the horizon.
If you want to keep up with the thrill-a-minute ride that is a chemist’s life in SSERC, we are now on:
