Welcome to the Royal Society of Chemistry’s daily calendar where you can find out what happened on this day in the history of chemistry.

Originally created as a graduate trainee project, the calendar serves up interesting tidbits of history for your enjoyment.

When you arrive at the site the current date will be displayed with it’s On This Day in Chemistry historical fact on the left side of the page.

On the right side of the page, you’ll find the calendar where you can select a date to learn more about what happened then. I checked out what happened on my birthday.

Each On this Day post contains what happened on that day in chemistry history, links to related resources  (podcast, wiki entry, periodic table entry), and keywords that relate to the post.

This  is a cool way to learn more about chemistry!

Check it out for yourself today!
