Investigatory Projects In Chemistry

by admin on September 10, 2012


Chemistry is the science that studies atoms and molecules, and their chemical reactions which is nothing but the interactions that both of them undergo. Through the forming and breaking of the atomic bonds, numerous compounds transform into fresh compounds, either consuming or producing energy during the process. Energy can be released in any form such as light, heat, as in an explosion or fire. By developing chemistry and enhancing knowledge on chemical reactions, one can produce chemicals with numerous uses.

The term chemistry was derived from a slang word called the older “alchemist” – a chemist. Today’s modern chemistry is usually considered to have established in the seventeenth century, mostly with writings and experiments of Robert Boyle, who formulated the principle called Boyle’s Law which proves that volume and temperature of a gas are related.

Following are some of the investigatory project ideas for chemistry students:

  • Which disinfectant is safest to use?
  • Which disinfectant kills the most bacteria?
  • Which method of cooking destroys the most bacteria?
  • Is there a correlation between attendance and GPA?
  • Can bath water be used for watering plants or the garden?
  • Test the efficiency of different shapes of fan blades.
  • Formulate a non-toxic or biodegradable ink.
  • Test products for impurities.
  • Measure crystal growth rate as a function of temperature.
  • Determine the most invisible invisible-ink
  • Measure the toxicity of silver-mercury amalgam fillings.
