What is ChemTalk doing to make Chemistry more interesting?

  • We are creating the world’s first chemistry inspiration superportal, with articles on middle, high school, college, and organic chemistry, the elements, periodic table, interesting compounds, lab equipment & safety, career advice, and interviews with role models.
  • We are setting up the ChemTalk LiveLab, a dedicated professional lab space where amazing demonstrations, experiments, talks can be live-streamed to students and teachers around the world, and custom content created. Viewers will be able to chat, ask questions, and participate in real-time using Youtube Live, Facebook Live and Twitch. Learn about the LiveLab here.
The new lab bench for the ChemTalk LiveLab – coming in early 2022!
