How do you find a chemist? That's a question I was asked via Facebook
"Hi, Anne. I have no background in chemistry -- I barely passed the subject in HS -- but I have an idea for a product that needs to be chemically formulated. How would you recommend someone begin the process of finding a chemist who's willing to develop a product? Feel free to use the question on your site. Thanks!"
Ways I might find a chemist would be:
- I'd look up the e-mail or phone number of the chemistry department at the nearest college/university and contact a faculty member.
- I'd post a query through an online forum.
- I'd e-mail people involved in chemistry, asking for assistance in finding a reputable chemist.
Those are the places I would start, but I'm sure there are other ways to find a chemist or chemical engineer. How would you find one? You're invited to post a comment.
