Why do chemists like nitrates so much?

They're cheaper than day rates.

In chemistry class, the teacher asked a girl, what is 'nitrate'?

Girl: "$100 + hotel room bill.. this is my night rate!!"

I once had a 2nd shift job, 3pm-11pm.

They even had a shift differential!

After my first couple weeks I received a case of hotdogs along with my paycheck. I thought nothing of it, but then it happened again next payday, and honestly the paycheck felt a little short.

I approached my boss and asked him what the deal was....

Why did the tiny robot need sodium nitrate in order to work?

It was a NaNObot.

TIL "saltpeter" is a casual term for potassium nitrate.

The more you KNO...

This joke may contain profanity. 🤔

Today in chemistry we learnt about how Ammonium nitrate could be used in fertilizer and as an explosive.

That's when I knew we were dealing with some explosive shit

A farmer once bought some ammonium nitrate fertilizer, but it smelled weird,

so he put a sample in a pan and brought it to the nearest USDA branch. A security guard saw the pan full of fertilizer and yelled "bomb", but it was just panned ammonium

What did the scientist say before he died by mixing Hydroxide and Nitrate?

"OH^- NO^3+ !"

Took a job in a fertiliser factory...

It's my first daytime job where they give me nitrates.

Chemistry teacher: What is Nitrate?

Girl: My place, 250...your place 400!

Two Chemists Were Talking

Chemist 1 : I'm afraid I forgot a couple polyatomic ion formulas

Chemist 2 : Which ones?

Chemist 1 : Hydroxide and Nitrate

Chemist 2 : OH NO3
