Hey everyone, this is a little experiment. Let me know if you think any A-terms are glaringly missing, if you hate any of my definitions, or if you really wish a specific answer weren't on here. Thanks!

I just noticed a little spelling error in natural under the chemicals subheading. Everything else is great though. Awesome quiz as usual.
Nov 25th, 2010 at 04:52 GMT
@Last two letters First two letters. Sorry sproutcm. I think we just look at words in a similar way and find opportunities from them. I've pulled it, thanx for letting me know.

Wow, this is like the Gift of the Magi. I just commented on your science quiz, and you commented on mine to try to have a conversation :)
Nov 25th, 2010 at 19:51 GMT
Yeah, I liked this one despite not being at all knowledgeable on Chemistry. But it felt like cheating to get so many right by filling in words that were correct answers, and only thus finding out to which questions they belonged. Is answer in order more appropriate?
Nov 26th, 2010 at 11:00 GMT
Two of your formulas are wrong: they should be NH2C6H5 (not H6) and CH3OC6H5 (not H6 again). Nice quiz though.
Nov 30th, 2010 at 19:13 GMT
Nice quiz, covers a pretty good spread of chemistry in my opinion.
Dec 15th, 2010 at 07:35 GMT
You could have gold, silver, etc as bonus answers.
Dec 16th, 2010 at 00:13 GMT
you could include groups on periodic table (alkali and Alkaline earth) good quiz.

Acetylene is also known as ethyne.
Dec 17th, 2010 at 00:12 GMT
@Psycho And acetic acid is also ethanoic acid, etc.; but these only have one name that begins with the letter A.

Wow... my chemistry is rusty. Did anyone else try adamantium for the main component of bone hoping for a bonus?

I've never called h2ccch2 anything other than propadiene. What about the Antoine equation, which relates vapor pressure and temperature?

There are three amino acids beginning with 'A': 'alanine,' 'asparagine,' and 'aspartate (aspartic acid).' Also, I might be wrong, but is 'autoionization' also refered to as 'autolysis' of water?
Jan 8th, 2011 at 22:41 GMT
one could add azeotrope and amphoteric. If you have aspirin, you may consider adding ampicillin
Jan 21st, 2011 at 20:43 GMT
fantastic quiz! a ton of fun. however, i do agree that there should be more answers available for "autoionization": i have heard the terms autolysis, autodissociation, and autoprotolysis used commonly.
