An Extended Essay in Chemistry allows you to apply chemical principles and theory through the exploration of matter and change. The research will ideally involve primary data collection through experimentation, although you can base your essay on the analysis of data and information from surveys or literature. The consideration of the ethical guidelines found on the research support page, and hazardous chemicals, as described in the Chemistry guide, is especially important.
