Chemistry: Featured Facts
Why Doesn't Glue Get Hard In The Plastic Bottle?
Chemistry / Chemical Reactions

Glue, in its many different forms, is a very simple-to-apply sort of thing that represents a surprisingly complex amount of chemistry and physics. On the face of it, what could be simpler? Put on the continue reading this fact

Ozone: Good Up High, Bad Nearby
Chemistry / Atmospheric Chemistry

The largest ozone hole ever recorded, roughly three times the size of the U.S., was detected September 6, 2000 by NASA's Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer. Ozone is a gas that forms in the atmosphere when 3 atoms of oxygen are combined (03). It is not emitted directly into the air, but at ground level is created by a chemical reaction between oxides of n continue reading this fact

What Is pH?
Chemistry / Chemical Properties

Litmus paper is used to measure pH. Anyone who is the least bit familiar with vinegar, nausea, sodium bicarbonate, and ammonia-based cleaning solutions probably has a very good 'feel' for the different natures of acidic and basic soluti continue reading this fact
