Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments: All Lab, No Lecture (DIY Science) ペーパーバック – イラスト付き, 2008/5/13
Robert Bruce Thompson is a coauthor of Building the Perfect PC, Astronomy Hacks, and the Illustrated Guide to Astronomical Wonders. Thompson built his first computer in 1976 from discrete chips. It had 256 bytes of memory, used toggle switches and LEDs for I/O, ran at less than 1MHz, and had no operating system. Since then, he has bought, built, upgraded, and repaired hundreds of PCs for himself, employers, customers, friends, and clients. Thompson reads mysteries and nonfiction for relaxation, but only on cloudy nights. He spends most clear, moonless nights outdoors with his 10-inch Dobsonian reflector telescope, hunting down faint fuzzies, and is currently designing a larger truss-tube Dobsonian (computerized, of course) that he plans to build.

The safety in the book is comprehensive as some chemical compounds could be harmful (ie sodium hydroxide)
The book lists what equipment you need to get and how to use it
There is a place on eBay that sell many chemicals for the first part of the experiments and there is a list which refers to each chemical and where can be obtained from ( in USA) and how to make other chemical compounds by mixing house hold items!
It’s not basic chemistry for beginners but the book is good for explaining about the method and with a little research or thought be able to do the experiments successfully. When I did A-level chemistry years ago some experiments were like these in the book.
I am enjoying the read whilst looking for chemicals used in this book before purchasing them and equipment needed
Above all an excellent book and I cannot wait till it warms up so I can use my bench in the garage and crack on experimenting
I share the author's lament over the passing of a "proper" chemistry set. The one I had as a kid contained all the "no-no's" (or should I say KNO, KNO3!)
In that day you could go to the chemist and buy all manner of chemicals "off the shelf".
At school we made rockets (after school hours, I had a terrific Chemistry Master.....
Now my Son wants to learn, we home ed.... this book gives me the chance to "teach" or better "inspire" him:- That I did already, demonstrating the oxidizing qualities of KMnO4, innitially he smuggly goes yeah and.... then quite soon it's wow, how the heck did that happen?
With the chemistry sets of today you take two or more chemicals, mix them together and go "um er what's supposed to happen", as the chemicals just sit there, or if you are lucky change color!
An experiment has to DO something tangible. Thank you for a great book!
On an offside as it seems that we are being treated more and more like halfwits, perhaps we could have a "for dummies" line of chemistry sets, and then have a range that are designed for the responsible, and wanna b edjucaited majority!!
