See what's new in our community...

Your latest ChemNet competition is live.  We've been enjoying the sunshine quite a bit in the UK recently so it got us thinking about the chemistry of weather.  Rainbows, lightening, snow and rain.  Chemistry truly is at action, can you work out how? 

This month you can show us your knowledge on the chemistry behind the weather in the ChemNet Competition.   One lucky winner will recieve a £25 amazon gift voucher. 

We have started looking into the apps that can help you study and learn. Games, offline info and virtual labs make apps a great way to make the most of your mobile phone or tablet. We have started small but if you've got any that you think we should show, let us know by sending an email to  


Whether it is asking Dr Careers, Dr ChemNet or each other for help, there is always a new set of discussions taking place on ChemNet for you to get involved with. Don't forget if you find anything on the internet that you want to show the rest of your ChemNet friends, use the ShareIn button in your browser. 


Our events are taking place all across the UK and Ireland. Don't forget to keep checking the map to find out when the next ChemNet event is near you. Don't forget to check out some of the events held by other science supporters too.
