Hello My fellow chemforum users.

Logging in here from South Texas. Currently taking Chem 2, and I'll be taking Ochem next semester.

I'm on here because I've never really been good at chemistry, and I'm seeking help now and in the future from my fellow site members who are able to better understand chemistry.

I don't come from a background in science, but after this semester, I've actually taken a liking to chemistry, and I'm looking forward to the challenge of Ochem.

I look forward to browsing the forum and reviewing the material that I've had trouble with.

Also, if I'm able to help anyone I will definitely reply to threads. Luckily I've read that the administrators and moderators are very helpful.

Thank You for the site by the way Admin.

I think I haven't posted here before, though I've lurked (and posted a bit) for a while.

So, hello everybody, I am fro Singapore, reached the drinking age in some countries (not all), and currently a lost sheep applying for universities and thinking about what to do for the next 9 months or so. It's like a 3/4 gap year kind of thing now.

I'm seriously considering doing chemistry in university, and become a organic chemist someday. Though practical wise chem (esp in academia) doesn't seem too promising so that's making me reconsider a bit.

I love org chem, especially synthesis, which makes me kind of jealous that so many of you have the chance to work around the lab making stuff and doing analysis. I did try doing lab for a short period and I thoroughly enjoyed it,  though I think if it's a job it gets annoying heh ;)

I thoroughly liked problem of the week when it was still in existence. Very sad that it's gone :(

Actually since there's quite a bit of interest in proposing synthesis schemes, why don't we start a problem of the week on that? Like proposing a scheme for a compound. And whoever gets the most elegant one wins! I think some of my friends at school really enjoy that as casual activities.

So: hohoho! Hello! Nice to meet you all!

We tried in the past - but somehow it never worked for long. Note it is quite an effort to find interesting problems every week. But I would love to see this kind of activity at CF!

Hello~
I am a High School senior going into Chemical Engineering in college (not sure yet which college but already been accepted as ChE major to Purdue). I've been lurking on these forums for a little bit. I hope to do something related to my enjoyment of programming, mathematics, and chemistry as an extension to Chemical Engineering.

I live in the good ol' USA as an Asian-American.

Just stumbled on this site looking for chemistry / general science forums.

I'm a terrible chemist, but a pretty good food scientist.  I have a degree in food science and human nutrition and work in food product development.  Most of the chemistry I do is food related.  If there are any ingredients in food that you don't know what they are, there is a good chance that i could tell you.
Aside from that, I'm a general science nerd and I like to give talks about random sciency things and corrupt the youth to get them into food science.  Lately I've been into the space program and anything nuclear.  I'm also a pretty terrible *Ignore me, I am dishonest* player - which is why I have a day job.
Looking forward to reading these forums periodically.

Hi, everyone!

"Bushinryu" here. Fom Europe, though live in Japan, with chemistry as a private hobby; hence my decision to join the forum here as I thought it a great place to share information and learn from the more experienced and knowledgeable.

Hi all, I'm Siva from Tamilnadu, India. I'd done my UG in Chemistry. I had worked in other fields for around 2 years and now almost my chemistry knowledge is rusted. Now I'm working as analytical chemist in a private testing company. I want to recall things and as well as i want to learn more about restricted substance in textiles (as I'm working as a Analytical Chemist in textile testing). Hope joining in a forum should be useful to recall my chemistry as well as learning chemistry. Apart from chemistry i like Photography.

Greetings!

I'm new here so, I'll introduce myself: I'm Ray, a graduate student, who is studying Science of Materials in the University of Sonora, in Sonora, Mexico. Almost 25 years old, and I love chemistry, physics and math!

I'm currently working in molecular recognition of anions, and I'm developing a sensor molecule that can attach anions via hydrogen bond. My undergraduate was in Food Chemistry, at the same university.

I have participated in several Chemistry contests, as well as in Physics and Math (but didn't have so much luck in the latest) and I won some prizes.

I enjoy reading books, play flute and play videogames :D And the best: sleeping z____z

I hope to be useful here!

   Hey everyone!
   
   My name is Alec Balog and I'm currently a sophomore at Penn State. Besides my general chemistry curriculum, online articles, and backyard experiments, the only real chemistry work that I've done is a semester of analytical research on molecularly imprinted polymers (which I will continue researching in the Fall). I'm obsessed with learning and experimenting with chemistry and will certainly be pursuing a PhD. in it. I'm mostly here to learn from all you professionals out there, and so far this forum is great!

I also love to read, write, draw, play video games, study history, and learn about any and all science, especially chem. Looking forward to becoming a part of the community!  ;D

hi all


i'm working organic chemistry, Fluorene/Fluorenone ring, the investigation of the mechanism between DNA-ligand interaction and the telomerase activity in addition carbazole and ethidium bromide ring, DNA-Ligang interaction and the telomarase activity,

what i'm saying is, would you be science friend?

i don't speak English very well but knowledge grows when shared

thank you

Hi all, I'm someone who's led a rather unambitious life until recently, and realized that there had to be some passion of mine worth pursuing, and so I found chemistry. I begin my second year as an undergraduate next semester, and I am looking forward to every single bit of it. I could describe the past years as me being a mediocre student due to a lack of motivation and enthusiasm for learning, but I believe I can change that; better late than never!

I don't know where I will end up in the future, but as long as I know I will love what I do, I won't regret it.
