Chemistry Notes

Below are Chemistry notes created for the purpose of covering major topics in the CAPE Chemistry and A-Level Course, some notes present here are also covered in many other syllabuses for colleges and other tertiary institutions so you can scroll through and see which topics you need.
( Note: these notes are incomplete, however they will soon be completed so please revisit Science Decoder or subscribe to our RSS to get updated on recently published notes, or you can help develop these notes by writing for us). Download/ View CAPE Chemistry Syllabus Here for Free.
