The Ministry

We are the Ministry of Chemistry. Molecules are our passion. We live, breathe, drink and eat chemistry (well ok, everybody does).

Our mission

We want to teach the world about science and chemistry. Ask questions and stuff via twitter or email. Check our blog for chemistry and molecules. Chemistry is beautiful.
We are also the blog of the MOLECULE STORE. The best place for chemistry and molecule t-shirts, jewelry, keychains & other beautiful things. We donate 50% of the profits made by the MOLECULE STORE to projects that help to spread science and knowledge in this world.

The Ministry of Chemistry also is the only place we “advertise” the MOLECULE STORE. We will never do paid ads because we want to use our time to make awesome chemistry products and not clutter you with one more ad.
