The problem is, where does someone find the kind of information that can usually only be found in a lab environment? More importantly, how does anyone then move from that basic information to useful information that will not result in your home being blown up or turning the student of chemistry into a giant green monster? Okay- maybe not the last one, but you get the picture.
Chemistry and the formulas and practical uses for it are not something that you just casually experiment in and hope to understand.
