Tippo Felangus, the Chemist says:
"Hey mate, welcome to Chemistry. This is one of the few jobs where you can make a man heal back up to full health one second and make him explode the next.

Sound too complicated? Naw, this shit is really simple to make. All you have to do is pour some of this Potassium into a beaker of water, like so..."


This guide will primarily be useful for chemists but may come in handy to any player and especially traitors. See Chemical recipes for dispenser macros and simplified versions on how to make complicated chemicals. If you don't have a chem dispenser, see the Guide to Ghetto Chemistry.

Machinery

You have all sorts of chems here, and can make many things. You can make medicines, smoke, foam, flash powder, poisons, space lube, acid and much more. The limit on combinations is a limit that exists only in your creativity (and the game engine). Be sure to be careful though, as mixing the wrong chemicals can be bad for your health, and please make sure you know what a chemical does before you use it. Experiment at your own risk.

Some pure chemicals are lethal or will cause heavy toxin damage if injected or ingested in their pure form.


Chem Dispenser Chemistry Dispensers

Chem dispensers can be upgraded to unlock more chemicals, allow for more precise macro usage, increased power recharge rate or higher power capacity

Certain space and lavaland ruins also come with their own, special dispensers.

Chemical Heater Chemical Heater

Some chemical reactions will require you to heat the reagents in a Chemical Heater.
This machine will heat/cool a beaker to the desired temperature, slowing down the heating/cooling speed as it approaches the target temperature.
If you don't risk making the chemical explode by overheating it (such as Meth) you can just set it to a very high temperature to avoid this.
Upgrading the laser will increase the heating/cooling speed.

ChemMaster 3000 ChemMaster 3000

Separates, bottles, and makes pills/patches out of chemicals loaded inside. You can load pretty much any container - beakers, spray bottles, water bottles and so on.
Maximum size for dispensed bottles is 30u, pills/patches are 50u max.
Pill bottles can be loaded to directly dispense pills/patches into them.


Reagent Grinder All-In-One Grinder

Grinds, crushes, liquefies and extracts reagents from materials placed into it.
If there is a significant reagent associated with the item, the Reagent grinder will distill a pure sample inside the collection beaker.
For example: Plasma/gold/uranium/metal sheets, donk pockets, fruits, dead mice.

Smoke Machine Smoke Machine

Dispenses any chemical inside as a smoke cloud. Needs to be secured by wrenching first.
A great alternative to smoke grenades, but easily incites lynch mobs.
Can only be obtained through the circuit board being printed, and the required parts being assembled first.

Upgradeable parts:

Click expand to see upgrades:

  • Manipulator: Unlocks the higher range settings.
  • Matter bin: Increases maximum capacity.
  • Capacitor: Increases efficiency.

Active Pure Chemicals

A.K.A. what happens when you eat or splash these. Chemicals unmentioned don't have any effect.

  • Chlorine: Causes minor physical damage to various body parts.
  • Copper: Can be splashed on metal sheets to create bronze sheets.
  • Ethanol: A decent alcoholic "beverage", with a booze power of 65. Increases success rate of surgery and flammability when applied externally.
  • Fluorine: Causes minor toxin damage.
  • Lithium: Causes twitching, drooling, moaning and not being able to walk straight.
  • Mercury: Causes brain damage, twitching, drooling, moaning and not being able to walk straight.
  • Radium: Causes irradiation. Creates glowing green goo on floor if more than 3u is spilled.
  • Sugar: Gives nutrition. Causes hyperglycemic shock if overdosed (200u).
  • Sulphuric Acid: Causes minor toxin damage and instant brute damage to one body part when ingested, and 50% more damage when injected. Destroys head-wear and causes burn damage when sprayed on someone.
  • Plasma: Causes major toxin damage.
  • Uranium: Causes slight irradiation. Creates glowing green goo on floor if more than 3u is spilled.

Medicines

"And that's how I lost my medical license!" Don't be this guy. Make these. Lots of these.

See Guide to Medicine for more information on what to use when.

Core Healing Medicines

These healing drugs form the "core" drugs used to heal the most common forms of damage. All other medical drugs outside of this section are either harder to make upgrades, or highly specific forms of healing for rarer situations.

Many reagents can be overdosed and/or cause addiction, leading to a negative outcome. Be sure to monitor how many units someone is injected with. If an overdose occurs, the negative effects will keep being applied every tick until that chemical is completely out of the system. If an addiction occurs, the negative effects will only start occuring some time after the chemical is out of the system, and can be negated by keeping taking it. You can usually only remove an addiction by waiting it out (or by dying and getting cloned).

Narcotics

Narcotics are highly addictive drugs that can aggressively, or passively, provide a benefit. Be wary as its very easy to become addicted, or overdose, on a narcotic.

As a general rule of thumb, the more of a positive effect (or any effect) a narcotic can provide, the easier it is to get addicted or overdose on it.

People who overdose or get addicted to Narcotics tend to usually end up dying to the negative effects or requiring immedient medical attention. Take in moderation.

Pyrotechnics

The manipulation of fire and matter.

Name Recipe Description
Stabilizing Agent 1 part Iron
1 part Oxygen
1 part Hydrogen
When mixed with certain pyrotechnics, it stabilizes the reaction and prevents the reaction for usage later. The stabilizing agent is not consumed when stabilizing explosives, and one unit is enough to stabilize any amount of explosives. This does not work on everything, so be warned!
Fluorosurfactant 2 parts Carbon
2 parts Fluorine
1 part Sulphuric Acid
Creates a large amount of foam when mixed with an equal amount of water. This foam carries any reagents along with it in the container, allowing you to apply reagents to large areas at a time. The foam will apply any carried reagents to any walls, floors, objects, or people and animals in the area of the foam. The reagents will be absorbed through a mob's exposed skin and somewhat through clothes unless completely impermeable(hardsuit/biohazard/medical gear). The less foam used, the more reagent will be delivered into a person's bloodstream. Foam is slippery! Can not react in a body.
Smoke 1 part Phosphorous
1 part Potassium
1 part Sugar
This creates a large cloud of smoke that will take on the properties of everything (if anything) in the container of the reaction. The chemicals in the smoke will touch and react with everything that the smoke touches. Mobs caught within the smoke cloud without wearing a gas mask or breathing through a gas tank will ingest the smoke chemicals. Great for distributing toxins in a crowded area. Can be stabilized into Smoke Powder with Stabilizing Agent.
Smoke Powder 1 part Phosphorous
1 part Potassium
1 part Sugar
1 part Stabilizing Agent (catalyst)
The stabilized version of Smoke - only one third as effective as the unstabilized chemical reaction. Heat to 374K to activate. Can not react in a body.
Flash Powder 1 part Aluminium
1 part Potassium
1 part Sulfur
Flashes in a radius that scales up with the amount detonated. Can be stabilized with Stabilizing Agent. If stabilized, heat to 374K to activate.
Phlogiston 1 part Phosphorus
1 part Sulphuric Acid
1 part Stable Plasma
Turns into a spreading plasma fire if not stabilized during mixing. Makes you burn longer, and ignites you. Deals increasing fire damage based on how much you're burning up to 4 fire damage every 3 seconds. Can be stabilized with Stabilizing Agent.
Napalm 1 part Oil
1 part Welding Fuel
1 part Ethanol
A substance that burns for much longer than other fuels. Inject it into someone and then apply heat for a warm toasty fireball human.
Sonic Powder 1 part Oxygen
1 part Cola
1 part Phosphorus
Deafens in a radius that scales up with the amount detonated. Can be stabilized with Stabilizing Agent. If stabilized, heat to 374K to activate.
Pyrosium 1 part Stable Plasma
1 part Radium
1 part Phosphorus
When first mixed it becomes 20 Kelvin cold. Instantly consumes all liquid Oxygen to heat its container for each unit of Oxygen consumed. This does not expend the Pyrosium, so 1u will have the same effect as 50u. Does nothing whatsoever without being mixed with liquid Oxygen. Does not react with the oxygen in air. Can not react in a body.
Cryostylane 1 part Water
1 part Stable Plasma
1 part Nitrogen
When first mixed it becomes 20 Kelvin cold. Instantly consumes all liquid Oxygen to cool its container for each unit of Oxygen consumed. This does not expend the Cryostylane, so 1u will have the same effect as 50u, unless you want to prevent it from metabolising out of a body too fast. Does nothing without being mixed with liquid Oxygen. Does not react with the oxygen in air. Deals toxin damage to slimes. Can not react in a body.
Chlorine Trifluoride 3 parts Fluorine
1 part Chlorine
Temperature 424K
When created it will create a temporary 3x3 fireball. Comes into existence at 1000K. A flammable substance so dangerous it can burn through the hull of the station.

Reagent Delivery

There are different ways you can apply chemicals to a person or the environment.

Under the hood

First of all, there are actually 5 different ways of delivery, called ingest, inject, vapor, touch and patch. If you are not interested in the details, you can skip to Smoke vs Foam vs others.

  • Ingest and inject both almost always do the exact same thing. The reagent simply enters the target's bloodstream. Used by pills, syringes, cigarettes, e-cigarettes, inhaling smoke and drinking the reagent directly.
  • Vapor is used by (ranged) spray bottles and foam. A portion of the reagents will enter the bloodstream of the target, but clothes will protect from some/most/all of it depending on clothing. Any hardsuit typically makes the target completely immune to getting it into their bloodstream, if the helmet is closed. But if the reagent has a "vapor" based component, that component will still affect the target, like Fluorosulfuric Acid. See more about foam below, with examples.
  • Touch is used by smoke and splashing. If the reagent has a "touch" based component, that component will affect the target (such as the instant heal part of Styptic Powder), without being blocked by clothing. Nothing at all will enter the target's bloodstream, with the exception of smoke if the target has no internals on. Currently all "touch" components are also "patch" components. See more on smoke below, with examples.
  • Patch is used by patches and medical sprays. The reagent enters the target's bloodstream entirely AND if the reagent has a "patch" based component, that component will affect the target. Currently all "patch" components are also "touch" components.

When a reagent enters a bloodstream, it will then "tick" about every 2 seconds, depending on server lag. Each tick or "cycle" will cause the chemical to apply its effects, while removing the amount described under the metabolism-column of this guide.

Smoke vs foam vs others

These are the major practical differences between pills, syringes, patches, cigarettes, smoke, foam, splash and spray.

  • Pills: Can be instantly ingested if used on yourself. It doesn't work if mouth is covered. Plasmamen will have trouble taking these. Holds up to 50u.
  • Syringes: Can be injected into people with their mouths covered, either by hand or with a syringe gun. It doesn't work on players wearing hardsuits, or on people with pierce-immune skin (like Golems or Plasmamen), unless you use a piercing syringe or manage to aim for an exposed part of their body. Holds between 10-60u, depending on syringe. Common syringes hold 15u.
  • Patches: Will apply all reagents into a person's bloodstream through any clothing, including hardsuits. Also apply touch/patch based effects. Example: A patch of 20u Styptic Powder will instantly heal 20 brute (touch component), and also enter the target's bloodstream for a long heal over time. Usable by plasmamen. Can hold up to 40u.
  • Cigarettes: Can be dipped in reagents to be filled. If smoking/vaping, you will slowly ingest whatever reagents the cigarette/cigar/e-cig contains. Though, if the reagents are too diluted, they may not build up in your bloodstream fast enough to have any effect at all. E-cigarettes can be trimmed with a screwdriver and multitool to also create smoke.
  • Smoke: When a smoke reaction occurs, the smoke will consume any other reagent in its original containers, and spread that reagent to flooring and people/mobs who enter its area of effect. People who enter the smoke will be touched by the reagents. If they do not have internals on, they will also ingest the reagents. The amount of smoke does not dilute the reagents. The reagents will be copied to every individual or tile (not walls, windows or doors) over the cloud's duration. Reagents that are special coded to affect floor/environment (such as blood, acid or Space Cleaner) will do so. Smoke will usually block sight.

Smoke example 1: Smoke containing 20u Styptic Powder. Everyone caught in the cloud, including people wearing hardsuits, will slowly heal 20 brute (and scream in pain), if they stay in the smoke for the its full duration (otherwise they will heal partially). Those who are not wearing internals will also ingest 20u of the medicine, making it enter their bloodstream and start healing them over time. But since this particular medicine will deal toxin damage if not applied via touch/patch, those who inhale it will also start taking toxin damage.

Smoke example 2: Smoke containing 20u Chlorine Trifluoride(CLF3). CLF3 has a touch(and vapor) component, so everyone caught in the cloud, including people wearing hardsuits and internals, will catch on fire. It will also deal burn damage to the environment, since CLF3 is coded to do so. Those who are not wearing internals will also ingest 20u of the CLF3 and thus, start heating up from the inside, effectively burning from both in and out at the same time.

  • Foam: When a foam reaction occurs, the foam will consume any other reagent in its original containers, and spread that reagent to flooring and people/mobs who enter its area of effect. The foam will spread slower than smoke and is usually slippery. Reagents will be copied through the vapor type delivery to those affected over the duration of the foam, BUT the reagents will be heavily diluted depending on the amount of foaming reagent used. Any clothing will reduce how much of the reagents will enter a person's bloodstream. Furthermore, foam reagent bloodstream insertion is divided into several 'ticks'. A minimum amount of reagent is required per tick for it to enter a bloodstream. So if too little reagents are contained in the reaction, or too much foam is used, the foam will do nothing. These ticks are counted after dilution and protection from clothing. On the other hand, if you use very small amounts of foam, the reagents may instead multiply in the bloodstream to more than the original amount. Hardsuits with helmets on will make people immune to getting reagents into their bloodstream through foam. Also, foam will not dilute reagent's effects on environment. So, similarly to smoke, foam will copy acid, CLF3, or Space Cleaner to any tile it touches (but not walls, windows or doors). Foam will not block sight.

Foam example 1: 250u foam containing 10u blood with a virus. The floor will be dirtied by blood, but none of those touched by the foam will have their bloodstreams affected, since the blood was too diluted.

Foam example 2: 20u foam containing 250u Fluorosulfuric Acid. A small area and everyone touched by the foam will have large amounts of acid slowly melting their clothing and the affected floor and items. Those who did not wear a hardsuit with helmet on will also have a large amount of acid in their bloodstreams, depending on what they were wearing and how long they were in the foam. If they had internals on or not doesn't matter.

  • Splashing: Throwing a beaker, or using a beaker on anything with harm intent, will splash its contents. The longer throw distance, the more the splash will spread out. A grenade will splash its content unless it also contains smoke or foam. Splashing only does touch delivery. This means most chemicals will do absolutely nothing when splashed. Reagents that have special properties to affect environment, such as Water, will do so where splashed (creates slippery tile). Reagents that have a touch component will apply that component only. Example: If you throw a beaker of 90u Synthflesh at someone, you will instantly heal them for 90 brute and burn, since Synthflesh is touch/patch based. It doesn't matter if the target uses hardsuit or internals in this case. Another example: If you throw a beaker of 100u Silver Sulfadiazine at someone, you will instantly heal them 100 burn. But none of the medicine will enter the bloodstream, so there won't be a heal over time. This means throwing a beaker of poison at someone will do nothing at all. Splashing can apply chemicals such as Thermite to walls.
  • Spraying: Spraying reagents will apply them to environments (if they have any such effect), and will enter hit people's bloodstreams through the vapor delivery. This means clothing will protect from some/most/all of the reagents, depending on what they are wearing. Using a hardsuit with helmet on makes them immune to getting the reagent into their bloodstream. Reagents such as acid, CLF3, or Space Cleaner will still cause their special effects when sprayed on people/environments, but will not enter the bloodstream if the target is wearing too heavy clothing.

A final note: Many mobs are "simplemobs" which means they don't have a bloodstream and can thus not be poisoned/sedated. Monkeys and most playable humanoids are the exceptions to this.

Beyond the Dispenser

Just because it isn't found in the dispenser or the guide above doesn't mean you can't use it! Holy water, slime cores and plenty of other things can provide limitless fun for an enterprising and curious chemist.
