CHEM C is the ultimate chemistry set. This kit includes all of the components from CHEM C, plus dozens of additional tools and chemicals, and additional experiments, for a total of more than experiments. The page, full-color experiment manual is written at a more advanced level than the other CHEM kit manuals. You could call it a textbook, but the manual is too much fun to make that comparison. CHEM C has a similar hands-on approach to teaching chemistry as our other CHEM kits, but also teaches more advanced topics such as chemical equations, atomic structures, and the periodic table. These concepts are critical to continued study of chemistry.

The Chem C is their ultimate chemistry kit. Chemistry education and labs have moved toward computer simulations and 'safe' chemicals, so it's actually quite hard to find a kit that offers the types of hands-on experimentation that set the standard for chemistry labs in the past. This is the most popular chemistry kit for home chemistry and self-teaching. This is the ultimate chemistry kit! You'll be able to perform over chemistry experiments. The kit comes in a box containing two foam packing trays.
As you might expect, there's nothing particularly dangerous with respect to waste disposal e. The experiments introduce the investigator to the proper use of chemistry lab equipment and cover general chemistry and introductory organic essentials.
This is a set for middle and high school students and adults. It is not an appropriate chemistry kit for young children. However, you don't need to have any prior knowledge of chemistry to use the set. The instruction book is designed like a lab text. Each chapter features an introduction, a clear list of objectives, an explanation of the concepts, step-by-step instructions, practice questions to make sure you understand what is going on, and a self-test.
It is not complicated. You just need a grasp of basic algebra and the ability to follow directions to master the material. The pictures in the book are glorious and the text is easy to read. It's fun and down-to-earth, not boring pages of calculations and graphs.
The point is to show you how fun chemistry is! Personally, I think the 'pros' of this kit greatly outweigh the 'cons', but you should know what you're getting into before deciding if this is the right chemistry kit for you.
The biggest issue aside from cost probably is that this is a serious kit. There are risks if you misuse the chemicals, there is a flame, and there is basic math in the calculations. If you're looking for an introduction to chemistry for very young investigators, it would be better to opt for an age-appropriate set. The quality is the same, except that the kits are cheaper and cover fewer experiments.
Or, if you are on a tight budget, why not put together your own kit from household chemicals? Additional materials required. To complete every experiment, you'll need to pick up a 9-volt battery and a few additional chemicals that are not included in the kit, primarily because they are either flammable or else have a short shelf life.
Fortunately, these chemicals are not hard to find online. Specifically, the additional chemicals needed that the company couldn't legally ship in the kit are:.
You may experience breakage in shipping. Most people order this kit online. It comes well-packaged and mine didn't break, despite FedEx throwing it at my front door, but other people have reported getting some broken glassware. The chemicals come in plastic containers, so they are secure, but they are test tubes and glass bottles, so breakage is possible.
My advice is to order via a vendor that will replace any damaged components. Share Flipboard Email. Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph. Chemistry Expert. Helmenstine holds a Ph. She has taught science courses at the high school, college, and graduate levels. Facebook Facebook Twitter Twitter.
Updated March 19, Suitable for the lab component of home school high school chemistry. Lots of chemicals; lots of experiments. You won't run through this set in an hour or a weekend. The instruction manual is exceptional, with color pictures, clear instructions, and informative explanations of the chemistry. Includes lab and safety equipment, not just chemicals, so you can continue experimentation and lab work beyond the instructions.
