Welcome to the University of Oregon Chemistry Department Lecture

This site has been developed primarily as a resource for UO chemistry instructors, but high school and college chemistry and physical science instructors can find a lot of useful information here too. Come on in and look around! Let's do some demos. But remember...be careful and WEAR YOUR GOGGLES!

"Do not do demos unless you are an experienced chemist!"
