MicroChem Kit


Microchemistry (micro-scale chemistry) is ideally suited for home labs! It reduces prep time and lab costs while minimizing chemical use and disposal.

This excellent microchemistry lab can be used as a stand-alone lab course or in conjunction with any high school chemistry curriculum. It contains 17 lessons, each with an experiment to demonstrate a chemistry concept: chromatography, melting points, conductivity of solutions, mole ratios, double replacement reactions, oxidation- reduction reactions, decomposition, Charles' Law, Boyle's Law, hydrated salts, pH and pH indicators, titration, molar mass, buffer solutions, concentration and reaction rates, temperature and reaction rates, and galvanic cells.

The kit includes a complete lab manual with solutions in the back, 22 chemicals, safety goggles, and micro-scale lab equipment. You'll need to provide a few household materials and a heat source (like a gas burner or alcohol lamp). A digital multimeter is needed for one optional lab. Safety gloves are also recommended. There are enough chemicals to do each experiment 5 times. The chemicals in this advanced chemistry kit can be harmful if misused. Use with adult supervision.

These labs have been correlated to go with the A Beka, Alpha Omega, Bob Jones, and Apologia chemistry curriculum! (Not all the labs will match up to each of these.)

High school level only Review by
I would not recommend this kit for middle school learners. It is for high school or advanced high school chemistry classes.
Excellent Review by
This set is the perfect addition to the labs in our Apologia Chemistry Book. The lab manual is very easy to follow. It has great follow up questions to every experiment. It allows you to not only do the experiment but to understand what is really happening in the experiment.
great kit!! Review by
I'm fourteen and I got this set for Christmas. i am happy with everything in this set and it has been really fun doing the experiments. i would recommend this kit

Great Item Review by
Along with the other items we bought we are very pleased!. Makes Home shool science a fun experence!The sets are complete and you can get excatly what you need! Well woth the money.Thanks
Great addition to any program! Review by
I love this set. It is a great addition to a Chemistry classroom (which I used last year--a very inexpensive way to get lots of different chemicals) and a great way to supplement my Chemistry instruction using the BJU curriculum in a homeschool environment as I teach my neice and nephew once a week. (Science Home Tools included a sheet that tells me when to do each experiment so it aligns to my BJU book. The experiments are layed out well and we are having a blast!)
Helpful supplement to Apologia Chemistry Review by
We purchased this for a cottage school of four families, and it provides a very helpful supplement to the experiments for that course.
A great value! Review by
We like this kit a lot -- it has all you need to do a variety of experiments, with great directions. A wonderful supplement to basic chemistry textbooks.
MicroChem Kit Review by
Do not let the price stop you from using this kit! There is enough chemicals in the dropper bottles to do an experiment multiple times. Your family may be able to share it with (or sell it to) another family, thus lowering the cost. Do the labs faster, easier, and with no hazardous waste to worry about.
MicroChem Kit Review by
We belonged to a Chemistry Co-op that did not include experiments. We decided to do them on our own. The kids cannot wait to begin.
MicroChem Kit Review by
We have been using this kit with 4 home schooled children. The labs are written well, and we have found them to be easy to follow. The kids find the experiments interesting and informative. It was easy to match the experiments up with the books we are using. It is wonderful to have the supplies handy. The experiments have worked the way they were supposed to. Thanks, Tina Kaht GA
A Great Set! Review by
After recieving this set for christmas, I can't stop doing experiments. Although boring at first, it really becomes interesting and captivating. A must buy!!!
A very useful supplement Review by
We used this kit to supplement the Apologia Chemistry Kit in order to do all the labs in the Co-op Chemistry course I taught. Excellent kit.
