Hi. I'm the new Chemistry moderator. I don't have much to say really. I have a BSc majoring in Chemistry, which has almost as much Geology as Chemistry in it (I was originally going to do a double major, but changed my mind in my final year), as well as a 'smattering' of physics and maths. Generally speaking, I will do my best to answer any questions. I won't do your homework for you, but I will try and give you the tools you need to get it done. The user name Trippy is a reference to a nickname I picked up somewhere along the way in reference to some of the conversations I used to have. The title Hippy Chemist is a direct reference to my chosen career. I work in environmental chemistry. I work to protect the environment. My job is within the Government (local government) applying science to law enforcement.
