About Us

The Skeptical Chemist was established in March 2017 as a platform for science communication. We publish articles and tutorials that we hope will empower readers with insightful knowledge while promoting evidence-based science. We’re also active on social media, where a large and ever-growing community of readers and contributors can be found!

Our scientific articles and guides will always be reviewed, fact-checked and referenced where necessary. News and social media outlets have the tendency to exaggerate scientific claims; being skeptics ourselves, we cannot emphasize enough the need to only publish scientifically accurate information that our readers can trust.

“Science is a way of skeptically interrogating the universe. If we are not able to ask skeptical questions, to interrogate those who tell us that something is true, to be skeptical of those in authority, then we’re up for grabs for the next charlatan – political or religious – who comes ambling along.”
