    A compound is a combination of elements in certain fixed proportions. A mixture is a combination of elements or compounds in any proportion.

    Blindly mixing chemicals won't get you anywhere. To really make somthing usefull you'll need exact proportions.

    most of the times chemicals are used to produce a measurable color. A gas. or a changing pH.
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..
