MineChem is a mod that allows you to decompose an item into its basic atoms and molecules, and reassemble them into real molecules that can harm and/or help you.

This is done via the use of four objects:

  1. Chemical DecomposerThe Chemical Decomposer will take an item and turn it into its basic atoms and molecules.
  2. Chemical Synthesis MachineThe Chemical Synthesis Machine is used to create compounds or objects using chemicals.
  3. MicroscopeA microscope can tell you what elements you have in an object. 

    4. Chemists JournalThis is a book that is used to store all of your MineChem recipes. 

The Chemical Decomposer and Chemical Synthesis Machine both require MJ to operate. Energy usage varies between items.  Also, both lose power unless they are continuously supplied with MJ.
