Chemistry Research Idea

  1. Sep 1, 2008 #1
    So I am doing an independent study with a chemistry teacher next semester and I have to turn in a paper for grant money by October 1st. The only problem is that I can't think of a research project to do. It can be on any science topic, but I would prefer it be chemistry.... any suggestions?

    What chemistry journals do you read regularly? That's a pretty good way to see what areas are hot in research. Even just reading the past several issues of Science News may show you a few ineresting subjects to look into.

    I'm a high school student, so the lab equipment available is pretty limited, which would be why I'm applying for the grant money. The amount available is around $300-$500, if that helps narrow down the topics.

    That is the part where I am having the most trouble. I can't really decide where my interest lies for the project. I'm pretty sure that I want it to be chemistry based, but I can't think of a research topic...

    Okay, I went to Science News' website, and did a search on chemistry. Lots of good hits. Here's the hit list:
