The history of chemistry

Chemistry is the study of the reactions between chemicals and substances. Many of these substances are ones that we find in our everyday lives, such as medicines and household products. There are new formulas being discovered and created everyday!

Some of the most important and significant discoveries of the past are those by incredible theoretical and experimental chemists who transformed the world with their discoveries. The list is long for those who helped to change the world:

  • Marie Curie, who discovered radium and polonium
  • John Dalton, who presented the atomic theory
  • Louis Pasteur, who created the process of pasteurization and the vaccine for rabies and anthrax
  • Rosalind Franklin, who discovered the DNA structure in genetics
  • Antoine Lavoisier, the 'Father of Modern Chemistry', who showed the relationship between oxygen and metal as well as how oxygen works in plant and animal respiration
  • Linus Pauling, who did great work in molecular biology and quantum chemistry, and who won a Nobel prize in chemistry in 1954
  • Mario Molina who discovered the ozone hole in the Antarctic and co-discovered the harm that chlorofluorocarbons had on the ozone layer
  • And many others...

Are you inspired by great chemists of our times and in the past? Do you want to make an incredible discovery as well? Perhaps by working in medicinal chemistry or the chemistry of health?

Chemists are often undervalued and the exploration of chemistry is often not well understood.

However, it is integrally important for the world that we live in today! Did you know that the discovery of a way to make ammonia was the single most important reason for the world's population explosion from 1 billion to the 7 billion we have today? One of the most important invention of the 20th century!

It is listed as one of the top 5 chemistry inventions that enabled the modern world: the Haber-Bosch process which allows us to make ammonia used in agriculture fertilizers which helped our food grow. The other 4 are:

  1. Penicillin: Alexander Flemming discovered penicillin in 1928 and in 1939 Howard Florey discovered how to make enough of it to be useful. There's a good chance that on multiple occasions penicillin has saved your life! It is what makes up our antibiotics and helps us fight bacterial infections.
  2. Polythene: Most common plastics are made from polythene, in fact there are 80m tonnes of it made each year! German chemist Hans Von Pechmann accidentally discovered it in 1898. Later, in 1933 a chemical company ICI accidentally discovered it again and this time they figured out how to produce it, which is the recipe that we still use today.
  3. The Pill and the Mexican yam: Hormone-based therapies are used to treat cancers and are used in contraception, however, they were very hard to synthesize until Russel Marker, a organic chemist discovered that he could isolate a molecule from a Mexican yam to make the progesterone he needed; cutting the costs of production from 800 pounds per gram to just a couple pounds today.
  4. The LCD screen: In 1970 George Gray discovered how to make LCD's function by inventing a molecule known as 5CB. By the late 1970s and early 80s, 90% of LCD devices contained 5CB and it can still be found today, even though we're moved past it into other technology now. At the time it made phones, computers and TV's possible!

Why learn chemistry in Birmingham?

Perhaps you are inspired by world-famous chemists and want to follow in their footsteps. Or perhaps you need to take a chemistry class as a pre-requisite for another career you are hoping to have. Maybe you just want to continue your studies for fun by learning more about the world around you... whatever the reason, Birmingham is the best place to take your chemistry classes!

With more than 1 million inhabitants to its credit, the second most populous city in the UK, after London, is full of academic chemistry teachers ready to pass on their skills and knowledge to beginners, intermediate or advanced students!

In Birmingham and throughout the West Midlands county region, there are private tutoring schools, adult classes, private lessons, group classes and after-school support in chemistry. You will have no trouble finding a free trial class to test out your new teacher or class.

Birmingham is a great choice because it is a vibrant and historic city with plenty of distinctive neighborhoods, natural parks and urban areas to meet up with your chemistry coach. For example there's Cannon Hill Park and Lickey Hills Country Park, both top rated parks, and Brindleyplace, a neighborhood filled with some of the city's most glamorous restaurants and bars all accompanied by beautiful canal-side views, not to mention the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, and countless other potential tutoring locations.

Dozens of boxing teachers in Birmingham

On Superprof, there are hundreds of boxing teachers with different profiles offering their at-home sports services! Many providers offer their classes and private lessons at varying prices and training options.

In a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, your chemistry tutor will take the time to walk you through your homework, or will create for you a tailor made program to learn chemistry. You can set up a timetable adapted to your specific needs and availability.

Your chemistry class could be taken in one of the best coffee shops near Colmore Row, and afterwards you could take a stroll in the beautiful historic district of Holloway Head or Kings Heath, or visit the science museum to learn more about chemistry.

However, with Superprof, if you prefer to stay at home where you have all your materials for class, there's no reason to carry them down the streets of Birmingham to meet your tutor: chemistry teachers come directly to your home for faster and easier organization.

Chemistry classes in Birmingham: choose your tutor

In our online directory of private teachers, you will find chemistry teachers coaches that have graduated with teaching certification, as well as those who are still advanced students themselves, having learned at renowned schools and have earned top marks.

With so many teachers available in the great city of Birmingham, it can sometimes be difficult to choose your  first chemistry class on Superprof!

Usually, careful reading through some of the profiles that stand out to you is enough to make your first choice and set a date for your first trial class. Study the content of the course offered and the specialty of the teacher (A-levels, advanced chemistry, chemistry prep, final exam study), but also the notes and comments left by former students of the tutor.

Each teacher will draw on his personal experience they have learned throughout their studies to help explain the sometimes complicated chemistry subjects to you, their student. In Birmingham, Superprof helps connect the students and teachers.

It will be necessary not only to choose a reputed tutor, but also a course that is adapted to your level.  Beginner chemists don't need to spend hundreds of pounds for sessions adapted to advanced students, the affordable classes with be more than sufficient for learning and progressing.

Remember that the average rate of one hour of chemistry teaching in Birmingham with Superprof is 20 pounds: we are far from the higher rates usually charged by the majority of private schools in the city!

But your choice does not necessarily need to stop with the teachers offering chemistry classes in the city. On Superprof, it is also quite possible to begin get supportive with your chemistry lessons via webcam (usually via Skype) with a teacher recognized throughout the UK.

In addition to being easier to organize, remote chemistry classes not only allows access to hundreds of other profiles, but also to take advantage of reduced prices often applied to online lessons. The outline of the course remains the same, except that the student doesn't need to travel and neither does the teacher, which allows for more flexibility and affordable pricing.

Private lessons in general also offer greater flexibility: you commit to a defined and chosen duration, and replace your courses if you have to rearrange your schedule, unlike with a traditional training. In addition, our teachers travel throughout the Second City, regardless of your district of residence. Taking private lessons has never been so easy as it is with Superprof...

After a few weeks of tutoring or lessons with an in-home private tutor, your skills will improve and  you will begin to see your chemistry knowledge improving. Studying chemistry in such a bustling cultural city sounds pretty appealing right?

Don't wait a moment more before booking your first chemistry lesson with a qualified teacher!
