In searching for chemistry kits it often leads to stuff like this:
I have seen some nicer "boxed sets" for the ~$500 range, but I don't think this is really ideal. This one looks a little nicer. I am wondering two things:
- Where the best "complete" home/DIY chemistry set is that you can get online. Including the chemicals themselves, and the equipment like beakers, pipettes, etc.
- Where the standard places are that smaller or bigger labs like University student or research labs get their supplies.
I feel like I read somewhere a while back that it is being outlawed because of bad behavior, but I wanted to ask to see what is possible in terms of doing chemistry experiments/analysis in a DIY/bootstrap fashion to learn about things like way in the past. I don't know much about chemistry but it would be interesting to perhaps learn how to do analysis like you might (I imagine) find in biology, geoscience, ecology, or agriculture.
