Interested participants

Chemistry is a basic science, for this reason, we need to have a language-independent resource on chemistry. Wikichemistry would be the next logical step after WikiSpecies, running on a similar model, i.e. just the essential language-independent scientific data on each chemical provided for quick international reference, and then the language-dependent further details linked to the individual Wikipedias.
