We've made a new site: www.chemsets.com

The Incredible Chemistry Set includes the glassware, chemicals, and lab apparatus necessary to perform the most interesting and exciting chemical reactions. We have spent months researching the most fascinating reactions to include in the set. All of this research has been compiled in our Experiments Book. This book includes procedures for 35 experiments. The set, along with the book, will enable you to carry out these experiments. Please keep in mind that some of the experiments require chemicals and items that cannot be shipped (such as dry ice, acid, strawberries, etc...) Also included in the set are selected physics experiments (magnetism & electricity).    

Many chemistry sets fail to include exciting reactions. Our Experiments Book is packed with the best experiments that science has to offer. The book does not go into the same depth as other chemistry books, but rather provides simple, easy-to-follow instructions for performing each experiment. Below is a list of a few chemical experiments that will be included. The set includes the chemicals needed to perform these experiments (and many more):

  • Iodine Clock Reaction
  • Chemiluminescence
  • Traffic Light Reaction
  • Blue Bottle Experiment
  • Chemical Garden
  • Color Flame Test
  • Endothermic Reaction
  • Exothermic Reaction
  • Copper Sulfate Crystals
  • Potassium Permanganate and Glycerin
  • Acid & Metal Reaction
  • Calcium & Water
  • Hydrogen Peroxide Decomposition
  • Sodium Acetate Crystallization
  • Red Cabbage pH Indicator
  • Sodium Hydroxide Titration
Your Support!  

This chemistry set will require us to order many different chemicals, tools, and glassware. The cost of ordering all of these things is significantly cheaper when they are ordered in large quantities. That is why we need your help! With your support, we'll be able to afford to produce these chemistry sets and share them with everyone. Thank you so very much for your time!

The Chemistry Set is a great gift for the scientific minded and is applicable to all ages (Some of the reactions included in the set are inherently dangerous. Anyone under 18 needs adult supervision).  

The set includes enough material to perform the reactions at least twice. Several reactions can be performed many times. Also, a number of the experiments require chemicals that cannot be shipped. The following list includes these chemicals: dry ice, hydrochloric acid, methanol alcohol.

Some of the other science experiments include:  

  • Ferrofluid & Magnets
  • Magnet Motor
  • Extracting DNA from Strawberries
  • Electromagnetism

Chemicals Included: Ammonium Chloride, Ammonium Oxalate, Barium Carbonate, Barium Chloride, Boric Acid, Calcium Metal, Cobalt Chloride, Calcium Chloride, Calcium Sulfate, Charcoal, Copper(II) Sulfate, Calcium Gluconate, Ferrofluid, Glucose, Glycerin, Hydrogen Peroxide, Indigo Carmine, Iron Powder, Magnesium, Manganese Dioxide, Methylene Blue, Potassium Persulfate, Potassium Iodide, Potassium Chloride, Potassium Permanganate, Potassium Sulfate, Sulfur, Sodium Silicate, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Acetate, Sodium Thiosulfate, Sodium Carbonate, Starch Liquid, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Sulfate, Sodium Polyacrylate, Strontium Chloride, Zinc Sulfate

Special Thanks:

Risks and challenges

One of the challenges with this project is making the wooden boxes by hand. The boxes must be custom-made because no other wooden box satisfies the criteria of the set. Although the process can be time consuming, we're confident that we can produce these efficiently.
