# Chemistry on Brilliant

Hey guys. I am really amazed at several of the wiki pages that have been written up, and am thankful for your contributions. We are getting close to be pushing out the first version of Chemistry on the site, and would like some help with a few more wiki pages.

The subtopics of fundamentals and Reaction Mechanics subtopics are mostly good, but the Chemical bonding and Organic Chemistry will need more work. The pages that need material are listed out in Needs writers. I would like to half that list of 20, before we release chemistry.

Let me know if I can help in any way.

For those of you who are interested in building out Chemistry on Brilliant, and would be willing to spend time writing up great wiki pages over the next month, we would appreciate if you help us by filling out the wikis listed here.

To make it easier for you to communicate with others as you're collaborating on these wikis, you can sign in to Brilliant chat and head over to the #chemistry channel. There, you will find other Chemistry enthusiasts and can bounce ideas with them!

Once these initial wikis are filled, we can look into adding more skills and placing these problems accordingly. With the community's help, we can get Chemistry on Brilliant!

Woohoo!

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

I have added to Aldehydes and Ketones. It is a very large topic in itself. So I will probably take days to complete that.

I have added a bit to order of chemical reactions.

- 4 years, 3 months ago

Thanks! I will add you to the list, so that we can easily communicate via email :)

Staff - 4 years, 3 months ago

I can write wikis but a little everyday.

- 4 years, 3 months ago

That's perfect! I will add you to the list, so that we can easily communicate via email :)

Staff - 4 years, 3 months ago

I will be able to give inputs on nomenclature of bicyclo and Spiro compounds this sunday

- 4 years, 3 months ago

I am also interested.

- 4 years, 3 months ago

Thanks! I will add you to the list, so that we can easily communicate via email :)

Staff - 4 years, 3 months ago

I am also interested.

- 4 years, 3 months ago

I've added you to the Chatroom. You can check out what others are working on, and assist them with it.

Staff - 4 years, 3 months ago

Now I think I should work on creating questions based on the chemistry topics, shall I?

- 4 years, 3 months ago

Certainly! That would be great!

You can also list the problems that you created for each wiki / skill in column H.

Staff - 4 years, 3 months ago

Sir, for organic chemistry, how could I insert bond line representations of molecules? (I can't download it from other sites and upload it to brilliant as many of them has copyright issues) Also sir, I will contribute questions of chemical equilibrium as it's wiki is almost complete.

- 4 years, 2 months ago

@Calvin Lin Sir , Can i help out too? I could probably help out with the wiki's or something

- 4 years, 2 months ago

Certainly! Here is a list of the wiki pages that we are working on!

Staff - 4 years, 2 months ago

Can I edit some pages like ionic compounds?

- 4 years, 2 months ago

Certainly! You can help us improve these pages.

Ya......got that........just needed to explore.....thanks! :)

Are you interested in research or lectureship in Chemistry? If yes than you must know about one of the most reputed entrance exam conducted in India through which aspirants from science stream gets a change for lectureship and Junior Research Fellowship CSIR NET (Council of Scientific and Industrial Research National Eligibility Test) is a national level entrance exam which is conducted for the following subjects – Chemical Science Earth Science Physical Science Mathematical Science & Life Science. To appear in this exam, you will have to fulfil the CSIR NET Eligibility Criteria. Get the complete information for CSIR UGC NET Eligibility from here -https://scoop.eduncle.com/csir-net-eligibility-criteria

The criteria will include the minimum education qualification + age limits. I hope the information will be helpful to you!

Sir, Please enable the chemistry latex for this site, Or else it becomes quite difficult to write up

- 1 year, 6 months ago

I will love to contribute something on organic nomenclature, but I don't have a PC. I am waiting for these options to come to the app

- 4 years, 3 months ago

Awww, we're working on adding publication features to the apps, but that will take a while.

One way that you can contribute, is to help us review these wiki pages and provide feedback on areas to improve (Columns F, G, in the spreadsheet) Send me an email if you're interested in helping out :)

Staff - 4 years, 3 months ago

I could help , but I don't think I can make chemistry in english . Also , can you tell me how can I follow these chemistry problems after they are done ?

- 4 years, 3 months ago

That's alright, we still need people to read through the Wikis and provide feedback. It would be helpful for the creators to know that "this part needs further explanation" or "I don't quite understand what you mean here. Why does that work?".

When the chemistry topic is launched (hopefully in 2 months), you will be able to "Add Topics" for Chemistry.

Staff - 4 years, 3 months ago

@Calvin Lin sir if I share a problem how would it get rated??

- 4 years, 3 months ago

This is a multi-step process. Right now, the focus is on writing up wikis. After that, we will look into adding problems across different skills, and figuring out what levels mean. This process allows us to ensure that when Chemistry is launched, the experience isn't "a bunch of empty pages" for people, which would just kill their engagement.

When we launch Chemistry, it will behave like any other topic.

Staff - 4 years, 3 months ago

Thank you sir. Chemistry has always been my weak link. Now I can improve.

- 4 years, 3 months ago

Mine too :(

- 4 years, 3 months ago

Haha, Nice. But I'm sure that I won't improve in chemistry, just because I don't want to improve in it.

- 3 years, 11 months ago

I will surely fill up many wiki's sir, but I will have exams this month, so I'll try contributing next month.

- 4 years, 3 months ago

No worries, I understand. The Chemistry Wiki project will take a 1-2 months to organize, so help in August would also be appreciated. I will add you to the list, so that you can be updated :)

Staff - 4 years, 3 months ago

Thanks sir! Help will surely come in the next month.
