Conditions of Use

This Question and Answer site is intended to assist members of the general public and school students in understanding basic chemistry.


Those who have questions of a commercial or highly technical nature are advised to contact a professional consultant or organisation in the field of expertise in which you are interested. (This web site also has a database of Consultant Chemists.) Questions judged unsuitable will not be answered on this site.

Profiles of Chemists (as required as part of the NSW High School Certificate) have been written by several "real" chemists and are located at the top of the Answers.

School and university assignments will not be done for you by the RACI!  We may, however, be able to offer advice and reference material.

Remember, we are based in Australia, so web visitors from outside Australia with questions specific to your country are advised to look more closely at web sites in that country.

We regrettably have had to disconnect this page from receiving 
further questions.  We have been too popular, and unfortunately
simply do not currently have the resources to answer all the 
questions posed on this site.  We are looking at mechanisms to 
change this.

In the meantime, please go and browse through those questions which
have already been answered - you may just find what you are
looking for.
