Chemistry: Atoms First
Chemistry: Atoms First is a peer-reviewed, openly licensed introductory textbook produced through a collaborative publishing partnership between OpenStax and the University of Connecticut and UConn Undergraduate Student Government Association. This title is an adaptation of the OpenStax Chemistry text and covers scope and sequence requirements of the two-semester general chemistry course. Reordered to fit an atoms first approach, this title introduces atomic and molecular structure much earlier than the traditional approach, delaying the introduction of more abstract material so students have time to acclimate to the study of chemistry. Chemistry: Atoms First also provides a basis for understanding the application of quantitative principles to the chemistry that underlies the entire course.

One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences
This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection against them).Bretislav Friedrich and Martin Wolf (Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, the successor institution of Haber’s institute) together with Dieter Hoffmann, Jürgen Renn, and Florian Schmaltz (Max Planck Institute for the History of Science) organized an international symposium to commemorate the centenary of the infamous chemical attack. The symposium examined crucial facets of chemical warfare from the first research on and deployment of chemical weapons in WWI to the development and use of chemical warfare during the century hence. The focus was on scientific, ethical, legal, and political issues of chemical weapons research and deployment — including the issue of dual use — as well as the ongoing effort to control the possession of chemical weapons and to ultimately achieve their elimination.The volume consists of papers presented at the symposium and supplemented by additional articles that together cover key aspects of chemical warfare from 22 April 1915 until the summer of 2015.

A to Z Magic Mushrooms Making Your Own for Total Beginners

Magic Mushrooms, Yaaaaa Hooooo!


In this offering, I will provide
one method of growing mushrooms. It is a method that has been
popularized by the likes of famous growers and forefathers like
“Rogerrabbit” (Marc R. Keith) and tweaked throughout the years by
the many others that have come after him to help put together useful
resources for the growth and consumption of magic mushrooms. The
processes outlined here are not vastly different than their methods
(also referred to as TEK-style tutorials), but I have attempted to
simplify the language for newcomers, explain some of the information
that isn’t absolutely critical for growing but helps to understand
the growing process, and offer some slight updates when it seemed
worthwhile. The end goal is a stepping stone, a starting point, a
guide that is comprehensive enough to get you from start to finish
yet short enough to keep your attention.


It is important, of course, to
note that you need to take the time to do your own research as well.
Not only is there a vast wealth of knowledge and experienced growers
you can learn from, but there are also some legal considerations that
may be of concern to you. The author (that’s me) and the publisher
take no responsible and absolve ourselves of all liability. Your
actions are your own, and it is highly suggested that you take the
time to understand local, state (or provincial), and federal laws
that apply to you when growing, consuming, and potentially
distributing magic mushrooms.


The book will be broken into
three simple sections:



  • Spores
    – a brief introduction on mushroom spores, a small number of
    strains, spore printing, and spore syringes.

  • Liquid
    Culture – a chapter on how to begin the process of going from
    spores to a liquid culture, which is used for growing the actual
    mushrooms.

  • Growing
    – the brown rice flour cake method of growing mushrooms using
    a liquid culture.

  • It
    is highly advised to read all of the steps prior to starting. Not
    only will these help you understand the materials needed, but by
    understanding the steps in order before starting any of the steps,
    you will be better prepared and will better understand the reasoning
    behind these suggestions.


Lastly, I encourage you to have
fun. Growing takes patience, but the entire process can be a
fascinating adventure in science, spirituality, and intoxication.
Your adventure may be riddled with some potential failures, and you
can easily allow it to become a frustrating mess or a growing
experience for yourself. It is truly up to you. If you continue to
practice and attempt to learn from your mistakes, there is no reason
you cannot enjoy the process even before you are able to consume your
homegrown magic mushrooms. So please, try to make the most of it!
