    @morgan-h-1 Morgan I am a third-year undergraduate student pursuing a double major in physics and mathematics and I completed a chemistry minor last semester. Among all of the chemistry I have taken, inorganic was my favorite. I found the topics covered to be particularly interesting (e.g. group theory and symmetry, metallic bonding, inorganic thermodynamics, transition metals), possibly due to my background in physics. This is a very interesting field with many applications and I believe it deserves to have its own topic.

    @harsh-g-1 Harsh Gupta @Phillip E. will try my best in chemistry section.. in astro physics even i need to know more. will contribute as much as possible.. it feels good helping people

  • Phillip E.
    @phillip-e Phillip E. @Harsh Gupta when Organic Chemistry goes into beta it will require 20 out of 30 days of high activity. This means that 8 or more people have to answer or update a question each day. You can make a great contribution at this stage.
    In the mean time if any of you can help out with Astrophysics it would be much appreciated.

    @harsh-g-1 Harsh Gupta @Becca M. i would like to see inorganic chemistry on socratic as inorganic chemistry being one of the toughest subject to memorise by students , a friendly helping site will help them study inorganic chemistry with fun and get answers of exactly what they want to know..

    @phillip-e Phillip E. I have a long standing interest in inorganic chemistry. I have started a collection of chemical elements. There are fascinating new developments happening. Inorganic chemistry definitely deserve to be on Socratic and I would like to be a founder.

    Someone from Tempe, United States I a already a prolific contributor and this is a family event. So it would make sense to be founder to this subject, inorganic chemistry great subject that derive a great deal from atomic physics.

  • Someone from Australia
    Someone from Australia Hi, I'm Michael and would love to contribute to inorganic chemistry as a subject on Socratic. I'm currently researching full-time in organometallic chemistry, particulary alkali metal and mixed metal metal 'ate' compounds in metalation chemistry.
    Inorganic chemistry should be included on Socratic as it's such a fundametal aspect of chemistry, in particular the exploration of solid state structures in order to get a true picture of the underlying chemistry in reactions.

  • Someone from Quezon City, Philippines
    Someone from Quezon City, Philippines As a chemical engineering student. Pretty much inorganic chemistry is a part of our daily life. You have to solve problems that are important to industrial production such as problems in concentration, volume, pressure, temperature relations, even inorganic chemistry is related in material sciences so i think Inorganic chemistry is not just an interesting topic but also a very helpful subject for Socratic teachers to share their knowledge with the more successful Organic Chemistry subject. I'm looking forward to contribute to this page in the future.

    @truong-son-n Truong-Son N. @jahan-psyche I see your point! I seem to remember learning about polarizability, Hard-Soft Acid-Base theory, the Born-Haber cycle, Pourbaix and Latimer diagrams, oxoacids, etc. It covers enormous ground!

    @becca Becca M. Heyyyy, @truong-son-n!! So stoked to have you on board. Loved your introduction note. Maybe we can aim to have Inorganic be an "in progress" subject when you're taking the course next semester! That'd be epic.

    Also welcome to @jahan-psyche! Sounds like you'll have lots to add as well. Do you know Truong-Son ^ yet? He writes amazing answers :D

    @jahan-psyche Jahan Psyche I myself am a pharmacy student and so I know how important inorganic chemistry is. Inorganic chemistry is actually the base of chemistry itself. So it is obviously an essential subject.

    @truong-son-n Truong-Son N. Hi!
    I'm Truong-Son, and I'm a Chemistry major. I'd love to approach Inorganic Chemistry (I-Chem, as I call it) from a more objective/general background on Chemistry.

    I think I-Chem should be on Socratic; it is much more than just an antithesis to Organic Chemistry, and there's so much to discover. I see it as an extension of General Chemistry to explore the transition metals more, and it's a subject that I find particularly exploratory, in a sense. Could be fun!

  • Truong-Son N.
    @truong-son-n Truong-Son N. Inorganic Chemistry would be rather interesting to have on Socratic. My professor once said something like, "Join the Inorganic Chemists and revel in our colorful transition metal complexes! You Organic people get all the colorless, boring stuff!"

    I'm not particularly versed in Inorganic per se, but I have taken the class before and I'm sure I could find my notes if I needed them. Plus I'll be taking a second Inorganic course next semester! :)

    @becca Becca M. @मयँक स. Wow, amazing. I'm from the US, specifically New York City. Do you know anyone else (not from Socratic necessarily) who would want to come join as an Inorganic Chem founder? Right now, the name of the game is to get 7 more founders!

FAQ

How are new subjects launched?

By the community! (With support from the Socratic team.) To launch a subject on Socratic, you need a founding team of eight people who are committed to building and supporting the subject through its critical early days.

Once eight founders have signed up, you will form a team that collaborates to grow and nurture the subject using a live version of the site. You will write the subject's first featured answers and recruit other contributors. Most important, you will lead by example by participating often and encouraging others to do the same.

Once the founding team has built a foundation of helpful answers and a healthy community of supporters, the subject will graduate, meaning it will join the ranks as a designated Socratic learning resource. We'll also design a beautiful subject badge to make it official!

Who can be a subject founder?

Anyone who knows a lot about Inorganic Chemistry can become a founder. Why? The Socratic community values passion, diversity of opinions, and commitment over credentials.

Alongside your knowledge, your passion to share and spread Inorganic Chemistry with students everywhere should be your driving force. This is what will help your subject succeed!

Why should I become a founder?
  • Be one of eight people building a shared resource that will reach more than a million students every month. Now that's legacy.
  • Connect and collaborate with brilliant people around the world who share your passion. Find your tribe.
  • Earn credibility and status, online and off. Add it to your resume! Founding a subject will keep you sharp, and can even help in your professional life.
  • Have fun. Building something you're proud of feels pretty darn good.
When I sign up to be a founder, what am I committing to? I'm not sure I have time.

New subjects need a foundation of helpful answers and, most important, continuous participation from passionate folks. As a founder, you will:

  • Ensure that your founding team creates at least 20 featured answers that represent that very best in your subject
  • Participate often and encourage other team members, so that you meet your shared goal of high activity days (days on which 8 or more people contribute)

No matter who you are, life is busy and unpredictable. That's why there are no individual or time-based requirements for subject founders. You can contribute to your shared goals anytime, from anywhere - so long as you make an active effort to support the team and push the subject forward.

Can I invite friends to be founders?

If you know someone who would be a great founder for a new subject on Socratic, you can — and should! — invite that person by sharing the link to this page with them, and encouraging them to sign up.

Inviting a friend to join you on the founding team likely means working with someone you already respect, which'll help establish trust amongst the team early on. Trust = better outcomes and more fun.

I would love to see Inorganic Chemistry on Socratic! Can I get involved without becoming a founder?

Yes! To help get Inorganic Chemistry launched on Socratic, you can:

  • Recruit others (know a potential founder?) and spread the word (share links with interested friends or online groups you're part of)
  • Contribute early answers — anyone can write answers, even if you're not a founder
  • Ask some of the first questions (if you're studying this subject or want to learn about it)
  • Get to know the founders and chime in with support and encouragement
