The Skeptical Chemist was established in March 2017 as a means for communicating science-related articles to the general public in a fun and educational manner. We publish articles and tutorials that we hope will empower readers with insightful knowledge, while portraying scientific writing in a simple yet interesting light. We’re also active on social media (especially Instagram) where a large and ever-growing community of readers and contributors can be found!

Our pieces will always be reviewed, fact-checked and referenced where necessary – we cannot emphasize enough the need to only report scientifically accurate information that our readers can trust.

Submissions and collaborations are welcome! If you’re interested please contact us at hello@theskepticalchemist.com or through any of our social media platforms.
