It is not a matter of it being a good idea or not. We acknowledge that chemistry would be useful to and fun for many of you. As has been said many times before and in this thread, it would take a lot of expansion and legwork for us to expand into chemistry and is not our top priority given the more immediate improvements we could make to our basic website experience, and improvements to physics and math.

Chemistry probably should be added to Brilliant eventually. I would not expect it to happen soon.

hey its a gud idea infact people like me who find org chem sumtimes confusing will b thankfull to u...

- 4 years, 10 months ago

you find organic confusing......!!!!!!! then you are dagger's drawn with chemistry....:)

- 4 years, 10 months ago

arrreee...........i really find org. tough

m never able to solve the questions and due to that i suffer alot......

- 4 years, 10 months ago

Although I want Brilliant.org to expand into other territories as well (especially Chemistry, because I love Chemistry), I think it should focus on improving the two sections that were added fairly recently. Too many projects at the same time result in none of them achieving the best results.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Of course, this would be a great move. It is just a matter of maintaining yet another category.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

but challenges in chemistry should be given in the form of objective type. then only organic chemistry could be included.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

yes you have made a good point

- 4 years, 11 months ago

not necessarily IIT JEE has questions in objective form and it covers physical and inorganic too.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

it will be good to have chemistry and even some section for logical questions would also be good.. but it would definitely take time

- 4 years, 11 months ago

u r asking for too much

- 4 years, 11 months ago

why, ???a logical demand is " too much" ..???.is it out of education related issue...??!!??!!

- 4 years, 10 months ago

what u mean by logical question?

- 4 years, 11 months ago

something anyone can solve without much knowledge of physics or maths.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

I think it's a good idea.Chemistry should be added because it is a passion for a lot of us!!!

- 4 years, 11 months ago

I like the idea. Brilliant.org should expand into more disciplines in the near future.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

i appreciate the goodwork by d brilliant staff members yet i also support d notion of adding chemistry even if its d basics as i love doing chem...

- 4 years, 10 months ago

- 4 years, 11 months ago

YES ,OF COURSE

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Yes that is very necessary .There are a lot of things that are relates to chemistry and if we get those valuable blogs of yours in chemistry it would be even better . Thus a thumbs up from me

- 4 years, 11 months ago

I actually searched for the Chemistry section when i first looked into this site. If the quality of the Challenges doesnt get affected , I would love to see Chemistry section too.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

to all of you:chemistry is fun,so i hope chemistry can be added to brilliant.org.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Yes, adding chemistry will expand the scope of learning in Brilliant. Not neccessarily to happen it very urgently.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Yes,chemistry should be added to brilliant.org

- 4 years, 11 months ago

YES!!!! I agree !!

- 4 years, 11 months ago

YES!! I love chemistry with a passion, would be a great way to review chemistry!!

- 4 years, 11 months ago

it will be great

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Yes I think it would be good

- 4 years, 11 months ago

I think addding organic chemistry is agood idea because that's my favourite science subject but one thing should be remembered too many coooks spoil yhe broth.

- 4 years, 10 months ago

perhaps that's why they have not introduced the chemistry section.......:)

- 4 years, 10 months ago

- 4 years, 11 months ago

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Yes it should be

- 4 years, 11 months ago

right

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Absolutely

- 4 years, 11 months ago

I think it's a good idea.

- 4 years, 11 months ago

i also think the same...

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Yess surelyyy.....

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Yes please. Chemistry on Brilliant would benefit us a lot. Thank you!

- 2 years, 6 months ago

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, please send me an email (Calvin@Brilliant.org).

Staff - 2 years, 7 months ago

Yes!!

- 3 years, 11 months ago

definitely

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Go to our search bar and search for "chemistry." there you will find lots of notes and problems on chemistry :)

Staff - 3 years, 11 months ago

ya it must be added to it

- 4 years, 10 months ago

Offcourse !! It will help for JEE preparation !! When IIT includes it, why not brilliant ??

- 4 years, 11 months ago

IIT and brilliant are different thing's . SAT exams include english , so should Brilliant add english too.?

- 4 years, 11 months ago

agreed.....

- 4 years, 11 months ago

No

- 4 years, 11 months ago

yes then this website will be popular then now...........

- 4 years, 11 months ago

No, chemistry is different from math and physics...

- 4 years, 11 months ago

maths and physics are different than each other too

- 4 years, 11 months ago

yes we know it is different from physics and maths but still it is a subject which has a significance and it is important too

- 4 years, 11 months ago

Instead of wasting time on chemistry, better concentrate on improving MATHS & PHYSICS

- 4 years, 11 months ago

what makes you think chemistry is a waste of time?

- 4 years, 11 months ago

yes i agree it is not waste of time but as much important part of science as others

- 4 years, 11 months ago

perhaps he thinks that as H2O is liquid... everything in chemistry would be as liquid as it is....;P

brilliant wont be be operating for one person alone

- 4 years, 11 months ago

thats right

and lets leave this verbal fight by the way i am Divyashish Choudhary from India

- 4 years, 11 months ago

i understand that you dont like chemistry but adding it wont give you or others any harm you can just leave it to those who are intrested in it
